Title Review

Dalit literature is now over-arching the vernacular languages. Written often in the material or territorial, it intends to shrug out of the insular to the global. It has, through the politics of deconstructing its lived experience, brought about a change in borders, a rethinking of the margins and an erasure of boundaries and most importantly valorized a language of power through dissent. The present anthology is a humble effort to bring the neglected parts of the Indian social fabric into the mainstream, by cogitating over the configurations of Dalit literature, its multifarious dimensions and potentialities in developing a new consciousness and identity among Dalits, besides trying to sensitize the non-Dalits with the issues and concerns of Dalits through different genres of their literary productions. At this juncture what is more important and engaging is the fact of sufferings of Dalits because the period of their pain, agony, misery, humiliation, exploitation and inhuman treatment they were subjected to, is as old and long as is the existence of any institution. English is the only tool that can connect the Dalits in India; being the language of modernity it can connect people around the globe to the Dalit experiences. It is a creative and exclusive effort to look at the scene in a heightened moment of time from the window to scan the past history of Dalits, assess the present and imagine the probable future and its impact on the society. The anthology consists of 27 scholarly articles covering diverse bards like Namdeo Dhasal, Bama, Meena Kandasamy, Bhimsen Dethe, Hira Bansode, Romen Basu, Harish Mangalam, Sharankumar Limbale, Mohandas Naimishray, Omprakash Valmiki, Narendra Jadhav, Premchand, Mulk Raj Anand, Raja Rao, Arundhati Roy, Vijay Tendulkar, Girish Karnad,etc., conceived and hatched by veteran scholars and authorties of the theme.

Satendra Kumar is Assistant Professor and Head, Dept. of English, Govt. P.G. College, Lansdowne, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand.
