Indian Dalit Literature: Critical Ruminations

Bijender Singh (Editor)

Indian Dalit Literature: Critical Ruminations is a voluminous collection of twenty-nine scholarly articles written on the diverse aspects of caste hierarchy portrayed in Indian Dalit Literature. The articles included in this book touch a wide spectrum of themes like caste-discrimination, exploitation, suppression, pains, pathos, tyrannies, atrocities, indignities, gender-violence, colonization, sufferings of subalterns, marginalization, identity, Dalit consciousness etc. which are the central issues and concerns of authors of Dalit texts. The book is a dominant critical voice for socially ostracized Dalit people. The erudition of the contributors has successfully initiated a new critical discourse on the horizon of existing Dalit Literature through their well-analysed research articles. Despite the brutal repression often meted out to Dalits, they attempt to overcome the oppressions, injustices and tyrannies with an undercurrent of hope that someday they may gain socio-economical equality hitherto denied. This anthology focuses on a critical study of some select Dalit autobiographies as well as some novels dealing with the theme of Dalit literature from Indian Writing in English. The learned contributors in this anthology are Dr. Sigma G R, Dr. Sony Jalarajan Raj, Dr. Soumya Jose, Dr. Archana Bhattacharjee, Dr. Himanginee Kaushik, Imrul Kayes Alam Sarkar, Dr. Narendra Kumar, Patil Sangita Sharnappa, Dr. Sumitra Singh, Md. Nazme Furkanul Hoque, Dr. Anand Kumar, Anita Gehlot, Udayan Gautam, Dr. Zainul Abid Kotta, Seema Rani, Vishali Sharma, Dr. Ratan Bhattacharjee, Dr. Sohel Aziz, Jyoti Arora Sharma, Suruchi Sharma, Kusum Kanger, Shankar Lal Seemawat, Sushil Sarkar, Bijender Singh, Tuhin Majumdar, Nandini Maity, Mohini Gurav, Priti Sharma and Dr. Parmod Kumar.
