Untouchable Spring
Description
About the Book

Kalyana Rao’s Untouchable Spring, a memory text, is a family / community saga, a novel and a historical document rolled into one. Using the oral story-telling tradition, Rao has brought to the fore, in cogent fashion, not just the social and cultural life of generations of Dalits, but their art forms. Through the stories of successive generations, we are taken on a journey to their heart-from those who were exploited to those who discover their humanity through defiance. The reminiscences of Ruth take us to her husband Reuben’s family in Yennela Dinni, to the boy Yellanna, his being chased away by his caste ‘superiors’, his music, his son Sivaiahs escape from the drought along with his wife, the latter’s conversion to Christianity, the brutality against him and other Dalit Christians, the birth of Reuben when things seem to fall apart and he is larer left in an orphanage, and then to Reuben’s search for his roots/This faithful translation from the Telugu, arousing pity for all that is pitiable and rage at what man has done to man, points to the growing awareness of people’s rights and how they are driven to armed struggle.

A work such as this that provides a historiography of the deprived over several generations announces the arrival of a powerful voice in subaltern literature.

Aficionados of grittily realistic fiction and students of Dalit Studies will derive valuable insights into the human psyche and the nature of public wrongs from this book.
