This book exposes the discriminations suffering of Pandur Dalits in Tamilnadu and how the Leipzig Evangelical Missionaries helped them to overcome their situations. The Leipzig Evangelical Lutheran Mission (LELM) was a major mission in Pandur near Chennai. Pandur is intimately associated with Rev. Johannes Kabis who came to India in 1877. Pandur has been a thriving Christian centre for decades with a strong Christian congregation, Church and several institutions. These Christians are descendants of Dalits (former untouchable Paraiyars) who embraced Christianity. From a life of near slavery, poverty, illiteracy, oppression and indignity, conversion to Christianity transformed their lives. Purpose of this book is to elucidate the role of Leipzig missionaries in the social, economic, educational and spiritual life of Pandur Dalits. Printed Pages: 99.
