Title Review

This book makes a critical assessment of Gandhian movement for uplift of dalits in India. Taking stock of the deplorable social ostracism perpetrated on a vast section of Indians merely on the basis of birth, it brings to light Gandhi’s conflict with the diametrically opposite stand taken by the ‘Sanatanists’ and Dr B R Ambedkar on the issue of human equality.

It describes in detail the growth and success of Harijan Sevak Sangh, an organization launched by Gandhi for the welfare of dalits. It also draws a broad canvas of contemporary global history where similar socio-political issues had surfaced.
