Abstract

India is one of the world’s fastest expanding economies, but it is also known for its severe caste system. The history of oppression, the plight of the oppressed, their fight for equality and the origins of Dalit texts are all explored in this study. This paper will cover topics like movement and the scope of Dalit literature. In all Dalit literary works, it is often assumed that they have their origins in Ambdekarite ideology. The literature also examines the harsh circumstances of Dalit people and their admirable efforts to improve their social standing. This literature presents vivid accounts of the Dalit community's social and political experiences in India's caste-based society. It examines the social situations that surround Dalits in India, as well as their relations with Dalits and non-Dalits. It looks at how the Dalit society fought for equality and freedom. Dalit movements, and by defeating upper caste culture by the help of Dalit literature by writers and philosophers, as well as the execution of welfare packages by the government, have resulted in a good attitude toward equality in the Dalit community's social life today. Discrimination based on caste and gender is prohibited by law. This is a literary journey of suppressed people from their search for identity to social equality as well as gender equality. This research will deal with Dalit Literature and Gender Equality.
