Description

This work deals with the familiar story of Dalits with a new perspective. Often social scientists in general and historians in particular interpret Dalit consciousness as 'false consciousness' undermining their radical political self-assertion.

This work mainly deals with the Dalit's political consciousness, their struggle for identity, and the manner in which they rose from a stage being of apolitical entities to a stage when they could develop their own self-definition and roles within the dialectics of the nationalist anti-colonial struggle.

The strength of this work lies in drawing upon vernacular sources and in presenting an insiders' perspective.
