Description

Over the last three decades, India has experienced a strong wave of Dalit assertion with significant implications for the working of the Indian democracy.  This short introduction analyses Dalit assertion in its three contemporary forms—grass roots assertion, social mobilization by Dalit-based political parties, and middle class activism. The author provides an easy understanding of the various facets of this movement and its impact on the functioning of democratic structures. Highlighting the achievements of this nationwide upsurge, the work provides valuable insight into the Dalit movement discussing its weaknesses, limitations, and future possibilities.
