About the Book


Indian Dalit Autobiographies: Marginalized Voices is a bouquet of twenty-eight scholarly articles which offers a critical analysis of different autobiographies in Indian Dalit Literature. The articles in this book grub out the vibrant dalit themes very astutely which are inherent in almost all dalit autobiographies. The most common themes explored in this book are caste-discrimination, exploitation, suppression, humiliation, pathos, tyrannies, indignities, sufferings, atrocities, marginalization, identity, dalit consciousness etc. This book brooches the topic of caste discrimination due to which the penurious people are forced to live a hellish life. Since aeons, the subalterns have been living their lives in the poverty trap and they feel steamed up but are foredoomed to failure in their endeavours. Some memoirs and related genres which are similar to the core dalit themes also have been included in this book keeping in view the importance and similarity of those works with autobiographies in the arena of Indian Dalit Literature. The learned contributors in this anthology are Dr. Anil K. Aneja, Dr. Parmod Kumar, Dr. Narendra Kumar, Dr. Zainul Abid Kotta,Dr. Neelam Bhardwaj, Dr. Neha Arora, Dr. Sohel Aziz, Jyoti Arora, Suruchi Sharma, Kusum Kanger, Dwaipayan Mitra, Anamika, Ramanuj Mahato, Jyoti Brahma, Vandana, Bhaskar Jyoti Gogoi, Harmeet Jhajj, Priti Sharma, Imrul Kayes Alam Sarkar, Himanshu Sharma, Dr. Sadhana Agrawal, Dr. Narendra Kumar, Dr. Archana Bhattacharjee, Dr. Sigma G.R., Dr. Deepika Rani, Dr. Sumitra Singh and Dr. Himanginee Kaushik.
