      This second, revised and enlarged edition looks back at the aspirations and struggle of the marginalised Dalit masses and looks forward to a new humanity based on equality, social justice and human dignity. Within the context of Dalit emancipation, it explores the social, economic and cultural content of Dalit transformation in modern India. Description In India, life of millions of Dalits, even today, is characterised by long, consistent struggle from cradle to grave. Their life is defined by caste-discrimination, exploitation, abuse, and denial of basic right to life with resources for survival – .

      This book is a comprehensive introduction to dalits in India (who comprise over one-sixth of the country’s population) from the origins of caste system to the present day. Despite a plethora of provisions for affirmative action in the Indian Constitution, dalits are largely excluded from the mainstream except for a minuscule section.   Dalits have suffered a lot in India, their forefathers were exploited and destroyed. Their growth wasw stunted. Dalitism is the answer for all this. It will not only save the Dalits but India as well. Possibly, it may avert a Third World War. India can attain its real self and liberation only with Dalitism.

      Bridging the Social Gap: Perspectives on Dalit Empowerment addresses four interrelated issues. It conceptualises exclusion-linked deprivation of excluded and indigenous groups in Indian society and elaborates the concept and meaning of social exclusion in general, and of caste-, untouchability- and ethnicity-based exclusion in particular. Asia India's caste system: Weakened, but still influential. Despite laws that aim to create equality, the caste system in India continues to have a strong impact on society.
