ABOUT THE BOOK

The anthology Dalit Men's Autobiographies: Convergences and Divergences comprises of twenty-nine critical studies done by various academicians on the select testimonial narratives recorded by Dalit men. These narratives document 'casteism' that is still prevalent in democratic India that rejects the Dalit identity. These real life narratives, being searing and sharp, highlight the Dalit struggle that has compelled the socially segregated Dalits to endure atrocious and in human subjugation in the compartmentalized Hindu society that oppresses them by taking the support of certain religious scriptures. These autobiographies strip the social niceties to shreds, and reveal the multiple oppression, sufferings, humiliation and pain, but also rebel against exploitation and prejudices by exposing them through literary voice. Hence the individual struggle of the Dalits in turn becomes the collective struggle for which India owes huge debt to Dalits. These auto-narratives instill consciousness and awakening and that's why it is hoped that this anthology will be very useful in the literary circle. The esteemed contributors of this anthology are Prof. D. Amalraj, Dr Shikha Saxena, Dr S. R. Chaitra, Dr Deeba Sarmad, Dr Suruchi Sharma, Dr Kusum Kanger, Dr Ruchika Katiyar, Dr V. Suganthi, Dr Meenu Dudeja, Dr C. Ramya, Subhasish Barua, Kalyan Pattanayak, Sukriti Sobti, N. Padmapriyadharshini, Abdul Wahied Wani, Guni Vats, Sanjay Kumar, Dr Avinash Kumar, Dr Vinod K. Chopra, Dr Tamanna, Dr Budhanath Pratihast, Dr Ritika Agnihotri, Dr Parul Aggarwal, Harish Mangalam , Dr V. Brinda Shree, Dr B. Manivannan, Dr Suchitra Gupta, Dr Ashok Verma and Dr S. Chelliah.
