Details

Gujarati Dalit literature is committed to the plight of Dalit Community, particulary the SC, the ST and the Baxi panch groups. It straightforwardly deals with discrimination and exploitation of these Communities. It emphasizes the theme of exposition of the sufferings of non-high castes people and pays little attention to the forms of literary pieces. It has been wildly criticized for the lack of forms. But Gujarati Dalit Literature is quite recent and to expect perfection of forms at this stage is too much. We can only say that Gujarati Dalit Literature is rough diamond. But more than this, it is the powerful, it will take the care of the form. In this respect selected Gujarati Dalit Literature is the veritable example of the theme that takes the form at the same time. This Anthology contains the creative writings by Dalit writers because they have direct experiences and realizations of Dalit Communities. But it does believe that non-Dalit writers can also produce Dalit Literature provided they have Commitment to dalit experience and dalit ideology. However, due to paucity of pages, the wiritings of non-Dalit Literature could not be included in this anthology. The editor regrets it. Though Gujarati Dalit Literature is inspired by Dr. Ambedkar’s ideology and Marathi Dalit Literature, It has its own independent identity. A few Comparatively young and moderately Gujarati Dalit poets and writers, exposed to national and world literature, dedicate themselves to neglected areas of experiences in literature of the time. They decide to expand the horizon of literature, they explicated the vision of treating a Dalit at least as a Human being. This vision, It is sure, will be helpful to the reasearchers, professors, general readers and a Common man without fail.
