B.R. Ambedkar was intimately involved with many factors that created the basis of what India is today. At the same time, one cannot overlook Ambedkar's 'past' and the fact that he grew up facing discrimination and being made to sit on the floor outside the classroom as a child, as he was a Dalit. Even today, millions of Dalit children face similar discrimination in their everyday life. Such incidents are distinct reminders of the continuing relevance of Ambedkar and the uncivil and barbaric nature of India's 'civil' society. This book brings together a wide variety of scholarly ideas: the ... View more info

Enslaved Innocence : Child labour in South Asia

ISBN: 9789380607306

Enslaved Innocence: Child Labour in South Asia explores the historical, economic, and social factors surrounding the issue of child labour.

Extremely exploitative labour processes bring ... View more info

Highland Odisha: Life and Society Beyond the Coastal World

By: Uwe Skoda & Biswamoy Pati (Eds.)

Price: $41.25

Publisher: New Delhi, Primus Books: 2017

Seller ID: 701515

ISBN: 9789384082970

Condition: New


Studies of Odisha have often been simplistic and condensed to notions of a relatively prosperous, urbanized centre in the plain along the sea vis-à-vis a backward 'hinterland'. Due to such notions of othering, Odisha beyond the coastal world-the largely Adivasi—populated highlands and ostensible backyard areas in coastal perspectives—has often been relegated to the background of both scholarly and popular imagination. Highland Odisha inverts such othering to draw attention to the highlands of Odisha in the west and south. It is based on fieldwork, participant observation, oral traditions,... View more info
