'The women tell it like it is... So riveting is the narration that it is difficult to put down the book until their stories are finished. For a non-fiction academic work this is no small feat.’ — The Hindu Sharmila Rege’s path breaking study of Dalit women’s writings and lives offers a powerful counter-narrative to the mainstream assumptions about the development of feminism in India in the 20th century. Extensive extracts from eight Dalit women’s writings cover issues such as food and hunger, community, caste, labour, education, violence, resistance and collective struggle. The voices that resound throughout the book, reveal that Dalit feminism, far from being ‘silent’ as so often presumed, is rich, powerful, layered – and highly articulate. Published by Zubaan.

Maharshi Aurobindo believed that the 21st century is for the Hindus. Are the Hindus ready for that? Will they rise to the occasion? It will depend on how the Hindu community has shaped itself in the century that has just ended, the 20th century. Three great men have been mainly responsible for moulding the Hindu society in the byegone century, Ambedkar, Hedgewar and Gandhi. They can be definitely referred to as the MODERN HINDU TRINITY. - Ambedkar raised the standard of revolt against the many evils that had crept up in the Hindu society over a period of time and of which untouchability was the worst and most unpardonable sin. - Hedgewar diagnosed that the Hindu community of his time lacked vitality in the shape of unity. He advocated that once unity was restored in the Hindu community all its weakness will disappear and it will be ready to face all challenges, both internal and external. - Mahatma Gandhi made social reforms in the Hindu society an integral part of the freedom struggle which he led so very ably from 1920 upto the attainment of Freedom. Read this book to understand and appreciate the vital contributions made by these modern Brahma , Vishnu and Mahesh in making the Hindu community ready for its historic role in the current century. You will also be in a position to realise what part you have to play in making Maharshi Aurobindo’s prophecy a reality.

Ambedkar has shown the harsh reality and true faces of the Congress leaders (and Gandhi in particular) of his era who acted no less than racists when it came to granting privileges and showing concerns to the depressed classes. He even goes on to state facts which suggests how Gandhi tried very hard to appease the Muslim community but sidelined untouchables.

The subjugation of millions of people in a caste system that is a radical form of apartheid has long had its critics, both from within India and from outside it. Although the government has introduced equal opportunity legislation in an effort to right some of history's wrongs, untouchability is an accident of birth that continues to stigmatize and ostracize more than one hundred and forty million people. Untouchables remain on the bottom of the socioeconomic scale and are found, more often than not, in unskilled, low status occupations. They are forbidden to enter temples, often beg for their food, must leave their chests uncovered and silently endure public humiliations and insults. They remain on the fringes of society and it is even said by some that their shadows pollute passersby. This excellent book addresses the problem of untouchability by providing an overview of the subject as well as penetrating insights into its social and religious origins. The author persuasively demonstrates that untouchability is a deeply ambiguous condition: neither inside nor outside society, reviled yet indispensable, untouchables constitute an original category of social exclusion. This is reflected in the various social movements they have led over the last century and more. The situation of untouchables is crucial to the understanding of caste dynamics, especially in contemporary circumstances, but emphasis, particularly within anthropology, has been placed on the dominant aspects of the caste system rather than on those marginalized and excluded from it. This important book redresses this problem and represents a vital contribution to studies of India, Hinduism, human rights, history, sociology and anthropology.
