Synopsis An in-depth study of the issue of Dalit human rights and the caste system from varying perspectives including those of the victims, the book is divided into two sections. The first section is a comprehensive account of a two-day national workshop at Chennai, the first of its kind, on “Human Rights and Societal changes with reference to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes” jointly organized by NHRC and DELT.

Many of the writings included in the second section have appeared in newspapers and periodicals. These have been included for an understanding of the state of Dalit human rights.
