The Outcaste by Sharankumar Limbale

Very powerful Dalit autobiography, first published in Marathi in 1984 that created something of a storm in literary circles. This translation remains faithful to the original version and does not incorporate the revisions and changes made by the author in the later two versions. A correct decision as it retains the anger and raw feeling of the first edition. Two things stand out: one is the strong visual imagery of hunger and the lengths it can drive a person to, such as eating jowar picked from dung-heaps and the leftovers of the better off in the village. As the author comments having a stomach is a terrible thing because it can literally drive you to eating shit. Secondly, the author is a half-caste, born of a Dalit mother and an upper-caste man. As he comments almost every village in India has a patil and that patil has a mistress, often from the Dalit castes. The author is the offspring of such a union and this exposes not only the sexual exploitation of Dalit women which is widespread but also the hypocrisy of the brahmminnical caste system which on the one had grades castes hierarchically according to ritual norms of purity and pollution and on the other underpins and legimitises sexual relations between them; making the practise of formal untouchability, farcical.
