DALIT LOVE POETRY

Set in the land and language of the greatest tragic romances of the subcontinent, Dalit love poetry in Punjabi is a tale of love massacred by caste and class violence. It is a tale of love that triumphs not only in its posthumous recognition and immortality but also in creating dissent and resistance to the hegemonic structures in life here and now.
