Indian Dalit Literature — A Reflection of Cultural Marginality

Soumya Nair Anoop Kumar
Abstract—The paper attempts to trace the impact of Indian Dalit Literature focusing on the question of Identity as well as Equality; cruelties by the subjugated group, exploitation of the untouchables, caste segregation, oppression by the dominant class, suppression of women turn out to be the subjects of this new genre of subaltern literature. The voiceless anger from the deep-rooted souls of the downtrodden weaker minds are clearly depicted in the writings which are articulated as Poems, short stories, novels or essays along with their biographical accounts in many case.

Index Terms—Identity, marginality, resistance, un-touchability.
