Imagining Identities

Imagining Identities: A Catalogue of Dalit Heroes has been published in English by DRC. This catalogue contains a brief description of the life and achievement of twelve social reformers, epical heroes, and freedom fighters who contributed immensely to the cause of providing a voice and identity to untouchables. They are Gautam Buddha, Sant Kabir, Sant Ravidas, Bijali Paasee, Satan Paasee, Lakhan Paasee, Veera Paasee, Jhalkari Bai, Nishadraj, Swami Achhutanand, Uda Devi, and Eklavya. It also has a page on Nishad Chitravali, which is a collection of photographs of Nishad heroes in the form of calendar (cover page enclosed). Its Hindi version is yet to be published.
