About the Author

Ruby Hembrom is the founder director of adivaani, an archiving and publishing outfit of and by Adivasis started in July, 2012. She is the writer of adivaani’s Santal Creation Stories for children, a recast of the Santal Creation myths in English and Disaibon Hul, a story on the Santal Rebellion of 1855-57.

This publishing initiative grew out of a need to claim Adivasi stake in historical and contemporary literary spaces and as peoples. Books she believes are a great way of announcing Adivasi presence, keeping their voices relevant and in circulation. Speaking for themselves, whether they meet industry standards, criterion or not is the approach she endorses, challenges and positions through this platform for Adivasi expression.
