Dalit identity and Indian politics, New Education Policy, and more | NL Hafta 287

In this week’s episode, the panel featuring Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kripal, and Anand Vardhan are joined by Suraj Yengde, an award winning scholar, author, and activist in the field of caste, race, and ethnicity studies and labour migration in the Global-south. Currently, he is a senior research fellow at Harvard-Kennedy School.

The conversation begins with discussing the reclamation of #Dalit identities in pop culture. Suraj also talks about the discomfort around Dalit folks owning their ancestry, and the reason behind the loudness of Dalit politics.

The panel also discusses the ‘survival burden’ of Dalits and the exclusion of Dalit voices in national matters, the #NewEducationPolicy, and how far has RSS been successful in shaping it since 2014.
