Dalit Freedom

by Joseph D'Souza

This books a bit of propaganda I got for free at some church or missions gathering. Dr. D'Souza tells of the plight of the Dalit, or "untouchables", in India and ties to rally support for their rights and the elimination of caste in Indian culture. (Both in India and among the diaspora.) He sold me. But then as an American, I was raised to believe we're all created equal. Anyway, it's a depressing read, with accounts of the injustices suffered by the Dalit people, and a smidgeon of hope for their efforts to claim their rights and dignity. Check it out.
