Tamil Nadu, 1968. Village landlords rule over a feudal system that forces peasants to break their backs in the fields or suffer beatings as punishment. In the misery of their daily lives it is little wonder that the Communist Party begins to gain traction, a small spark of defiance spreading from villager to villager. As communities across the region begin to take a stand against the landlords, the landlords vow to break them; Party organizers suffer grisly deaths and the flow of food into the market-places dries up. But it only serves to make the villagers' resistance burn more fiercely. Finally, the landlords descend on one village to set an example to the others

Seduced by politics, poetry and an enduring dream of building a better world together, the unnamed narrator falls in love with a university professor. Moving with him to a rain-washed coastal town, she swiftly learns that what for her is a bond of love is for him a contract of ownership. As he sets about reducing her to his idealised version of an obedient wife, bullying her and devouring her ambition of being a writer in the process, she attempts to push back--a resistance he resolves to break with violence and rape

A Dalit history by Meena Kandasamy( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Babasaheb Ambedkar, one of the most important voices to have spoken against caste discrimination, was also the father of the Indian Constitution. Juxtapose this against the various caste-based attacks happening in the country today and a very different picture of India seems to be developing seventy years since freedom. After Rohith Vemula's suicide sparked protests and outrage across the country, questions about discrimination against Dalits and other castes have once again come to the forefront. With its long history of caste-based politics, it remains a sore subject that India still cannot properly address. Meena Kandasamy in 'He Has Left Us Only His Words' and Gopal Guru in 'For Dalit History Is Not Past But Present' write about why even education in India still functions in the shadow of caste-politics, and how India has never really escaped its past.
