Dalit Literaure, Let Them... - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Dalit literature, let them
Say and write,
Those who are the Dalits,
The downtrodden,
The poor and the hungry people,
Living under impoverished circumstances,
Under inhuman discrimination,
A world dotted by and followed into the toes
Caste, creed and class,
Backwardness, poverty and misrule,
Foreign rule and plunder and loot of India.

Dalit literature,
Dalit poetry, drama, fiction, prose,
Let them, let them write,
Not you,
Let the Mushahars and the Chamars
Write,
The Mehatars and other untouchable castes,
The washermen and the barbers,
The Doms and the Mochis,
The drum-beaters and the taxidermists,
The Pasis and others.
