About The Book:- In Every Struggle For Power, The First And Foremost Step To Be Taken By The Oppressed Race/Nation/Community Is To Prove Its Distinct Identity As Against Its Oppressor Ruling Nation/Race/Community. It Is The Distinct Identity Of The Oppressed Nation That Divests The Authority Of The Oppressors Over The Oppressed. That Is Why Every Oppressor Ruling Class Always Refuses To Recognize The Distinct Identity Of The Oppressed Classes Under Its Rule. Caste Has Survived In Spite Of More Than 50 Years Of Anti-Caste Campaign. In Fact, It Is Going Strong. Upper Castes Led By Brahmins Are The Most Vociferous Advocates Of A 'Casteless Society' And Also Bitter Critics Of The Caste System. But They Do Not Say How To Abolish The Caste System. They Are Convinced That The Caste System Is Another Word For Their Hindu Religion, And Abolition Of The Caste System Will Result In The Destruction Of Hinduism, For Which They Are Not Prepared. All These Points Are Well Brought Out In The Over 15 Yearlong Debate That Has Been Going On In The Dalit Voice., About The Author:- V.
