Documenting Dissent: Contesting Fables, Contested Memories and Dalit Political Discourse

 
Badri Narayan (Author)
Synopsis A new change is explicitly visible today in Indian society. The community of dalits lying dormant and silent have now become assertive, carving out their independent identity. This is found in the narrations of their own culture and tradition. This is a new voice and not a voice appropriated either from Brahmanism nor lacking originality as is commonly believed. This is precisely what this book attempts to explore. Many folk heroes are now at the centre of new dalit discourse and they have been put into mythical frameworks. Contemporary Indian politics is making attempts either to snatch those myths or twist these to serve its end. Even the dalit community is using these myths for its political mobilisation. This book provides an evidence and explanation of these socio-political factors.
