Few other Hindu gods guide a regional consciousness, pervade walks of everyday life and define a collective psyche the way Lord Jagannath does in Odisha and its contiguous areas. Jagannath is metonymic of Odisha and the Odia way of life, arguably much more than any other god for a particular geography or its peoples. While not derecognising the historical and the spiritual aspects of Jagannath, Bonding with the Lord attempts to look at the deployment of Jagannath in contemporary cultural practices involving the sensorium in the widest sense. The project of a cultural Jagannath not only materialises him in people's everyday practices but also democratises scholarship on him. The expansion of the scope of research on Jagannath to cultural expressions in a more encompassing way rather than confining to 'elitist' religious/literary sources makes him an everyday presence and significantly enhances his sphere of influence. Jagannath's 'tribal' origin, his association with Buddhism and Jainism and his avatari status make him an all-encompassing, multilayered symbol and a treasure trove for multiple interpretations.

The Book Traces The Birth, Growth And Fulfilment Of The State People S Movement In The State Of Talcher Which Was One Among The Twenty-Six Princely States In Pre-Independent Orissa. The People Of The Princely States Were Subjected To A Dual Pressure; On One Hand By The Feudal Lord Directly And On The Other, The Colonial Authorities Indirectly Who Were There Behind The Local Ruler. Suppressed By The Feudal Lords Over Centuries Through The Collection Of Various Illegal Dues Like Rashad, Magan, Bethi, Bheti, Etc., The People, Towards The Closing Years Of Nineteenth Century, Raised Their Voice Of Protest In 1898 For The First Time. It Was Followed By Uprisings In 1908 And 1911.The Strengthening Of The National Movement In The Twenties Gave Impetus To Another Popular Upsurge In Talcher In 1922, Which Was Again Suppressed. The Indomitable Zeal Of Talcher People Again Came To The Forefront During The Second Of 1930 S When The All Orissa States Peoples Conference Met In 1937 And Gave An Organised And Coordinated Shape To The Prajamandal Movements. To Oppose The Royal Pressure The People Of Talcher Took Recourse To A Unique Hizrat (Mass Exodus) Movement In 1938 In Thousands To Neighbouring British Ruled Territory. It Attracted The Attention Of Not Only Gandhiji, But The British M.P. Ms. Agatha Harrison, Who Visited Their Camps. During The Quit India Movement In 1942, The British Fired Upon The People Of Talcher From Air, Which Is One Among Five Such Incidents In The History Of India. Ultimately The Popular Victory Was Ensured When The King Was Compelled To Sign The Merger Documents In December, 1947. This Bloody Straggle Of The People Of Talcher Remains A Saga Of Self Sacrifice And Dedication Against The Unholy Nexus Of Obsolete Feudal Absolutism And Imperialism.
