The Dalit Christians (the people belonging to the erstwhile untouchable communities converted to Christianity) in India continue to be socially, economically and politically backward even six decades after India gained independence and abolished untouchability.

Dalit belonging to the Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist religions have been granted reservations in educational and political fields to enable them to overcome their backwardness and to compensate for the grave injustice meted out to them for several centuries.

For some inexplicable reasons, Dalit Christians have been denied their just right to reservations and thus blocked their progress. This book outlines the struggle of the Dalit Christians in Maharashtra to fight for their natural right to reservations.
