Dalit is an important phenomenon in India today. It is no more a question of discrimination alone. Dalits is a political constituency. They have been using a reservation opportunity in admission, jobs and promotion as well as in law making legislatures. But at the ground level their segregation continues. So does the debate that how to remove this scrouge of Indian society. Is reservation the best answer. In fact the caste system that was conceived thousands of years ago to increase the productivity has become a tool of division especially in the matter of sharing food and at the time of marriage. This book deals with all issues pertaining to dalits in its entirety for the students, teachers, social scientists and free thinkers. An excellent reference work, a ready recknoer and an important source for deliberation.
