Dalits in Colonial Era: Towards Liberation

K.L. Chanchreek (Author) Vandana Prasad (Author) Vijaya Kumar Singh (Author)
Synopsis The present study ‘Dalits in Colonial Era’ is an elaborate and comprehensive account of British Era Dalit Awakening which leads to their liberation and new identity.  The study focuses on the early Socio-Religious Reform Movements, besides Phule’s Dalit-Educational and Social Movement as well as Non-Brahman Movement of the South.   This study also traces the contributions of the first generation Dalit Activists and Leaders who worked for the uplift of the down trodden classes.  During Colonial Rule, Dr.  Ambedkar emerged as a pioneer of Dalit Liberation Movement and whatever Dalits got during the British era and framing of the Indian Constitution it is all due to Dr. Ambedkar’s fight for Dalit cause.  Dalits in Colonial Rule continued to be a wretched and condemned society but after Round Table Conference (1930-1932) followed by Poona Pact (1932) and 1935 Govt. of India Act things changed rapidly.

It was during this ear that a good number non-Dalit reformers and leaders also advocated the voice of the Untouchables.   This study will undoubtedly serve as a hsitorcial reference tool regarding the British Era Dalit Liberation Movement.
