dc.description.abstractResearch brought me to Britain twenty-five years ago and I stayed to make a living as an academic in a University. The complex example of the identity of a ‘dalit’ was at the centre of my philosophical investigations to explicate the concept of personal identity. After a gap of few years devoted mainly to teaching, I returned to researching the situation of Punjabi dalits. In the many conversations I’ve had with dalits in the Midlands, in the stories I have heard from them, in the ordinary and celebratory events I have participated in during the last five years, I have tried to understand the experience of caste prejudice and identify the specific forms of dalit standpoints against casteism. Am I well-placed to capture these forms?en
