Dominance of The Minority Narratives ? A Study of Mulk Raj Anand?s ?Untouchable? Chinua Achebe?s ?Things Fall Apart? and Aurandhati Roy?s ?The God of Small Things

Ravi Prakash S. J., Dr. Sambaiah M

The purpose of Dalit writers was to portray the exploitive, helpless, enslaved, subalterns/Dalits under the hegemony of the upper and middle class Hindu and bring about improvement of the Indian society and the enhancement of its people's well-being.The Dalit writer questioned the Hindu practices of orthodox sects and the practice of caste systemand Caste identity,? in Indian society. One critic said, ?It is the duty of the Indian writer to give expression to the changes taking place in Indian life and assist the spirit of the progress in the country?.In other words Dalit writers portrayed changing social reality, which constituted socialist realism. Anand had pioneered the writing of Indian literature to demonstrate his keen desire for political change and social transformation.My research paper finds these inequalities, faults in the existing social and political institutions within the post-colonial readings merged as a strong force in the narratives of Arundhati Roy, Chinua Achebe and Mulk Raj Anand. Addressing these serious societal problems which are prerequisites for peace , Achebe, Arundhati Roy and Mulk Raj Anand handle different categories namely the relationship between the onset of conflict, crime, theft, damage, violence and conflict environments.
