Theme of tribulations in novels of M.R. Anand in reference of Dalit


Archana Shrivastava

Dalit Literature is the realistic Reflection of those oppressed classes. This Literature is always a question of question which still needs answer as it is very difficult to define the exact time and place of its beginning. We only can guess its history from the written source based on ‘Manusmirity” or Ambedkar’s essay “Who are Shudres? It comes against the physical reaction to the violence against untouchable or Budhists. When we peep in the history of 1940, we find the great novel on life of Bakha, the hero of “The Untouchable” by Mulk Raj Anand. Mulk Raj Anand was initiated into the literary career by a family tragedy, instigated by the rigidity of the caste system. Anand's first prose essay was a response to the suicide of an aunt, who had been excommunicated by his family for sharing a meal with a Muslim.This paper presents the exploitation of day to day life of the status of under-privileged in his later novels like two leaves and A Bud, In the Old Women and the Cow, The Sword and the Sickle and The Big Heart. This is an effort to disclose the views and thoughts which are spreading in the novels and mind of the Author because the problem is still present in our society and the writer is also coming out with solutions.
