ABOUT THE BOOK

“Dalits of North India” is a collection of scientific research papers, recording the ideas of a social anthropologist, and historian who have lived with Dalits as a co-villager in multi-caste village of undivided Bihar and Himachal Pradesh. The interactions of the author with Dalits of the village he was born into, has been, and then coming of age with them made it possible to know them very closely. Thus, facts collected in the book are not based on the verbal report of the professional informants by the paid investigator rather collected by self for the use of self, hence, the facts are genuine and collected under livesituation.

It show how the horizons of Dalits have been extending their life style ever changing over the passage of time. In pre-independent India, they were badly exploited by all. After the interdependence there was a remarkable change in their sociopolitical life and the pace of their development has been more than expectation in the recent past. The traditional Dalit who used to curse his lot for his own and birth has taken to arms now, and have organised themselves to take avenge from the members of upper caste. So many senas of Dalits have come up.

The activities of the Naxalites and M.C.C. led by Dalits have posed a big challenge for the administration and police-force. Thus, the book contains different aspects of the problems and prospects of Dalits of North India.
