Translated for the first time into English from the original Tamil, these essays present the characteristically honest and uncompro mising views of Thirumavalavan, a leading Dalit intellectual and MLA of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal or the Liberation Panthers of Tamil Nadu. He writes on caste atrocities and casteism, political authoritarianism and anti democratic behaviour of clected governments, on gender issues; globalization; on Tamil ethnic issues and Hindutva, always from the point of view of ordinary people. Hard-hitting, courageous, thought-provoking, this collection shows new directions in Dalit politics.
