Scheduled Castes, as an entity are no less significant than any other fellow community in India’s society and polity. In spite of the bitter truth that a large section in our society, still takes them as the downtrodden and the most backward, at the lowest strata in our setup.
In fact, they have played, are playing and would continue to play a vital role, which no one else can match.
Scheduled Castes or Dalits- as they are referred to now-have a world of their won. They deserve a fair deal from the countrymen, in general and the policymakers, academics and intelligentsia in particular.
There are hundreds of books on Dalits as a subject, still this study, an elaborate and comprehensive one, is a valuable addition to the stacks. A must for all those who are interested in and concerned with this neglected lot in the Indian social order.
