A GARDENER IN THE WASTELAND – JOTIBA PHULE’S FIGHT FOR LIBERTY

350.00

In 1873, Jotirao Govindrao Phule wrote Gulamgiri (Slavery), a scathingly witty attack on the vedas as idle fantasies of the brahman mind which enslaved the shudras and atishudras. A hundred and forty years hence, Srividya Natarajan and Aparajita Ninan breathe fresh life into Phule’s graphic imagination, weaving in the story of Savitribai, Jotiba’s partner in his struggles.

In today’s climate of intolerance, here’s a manifesto of resistance – Phule setting the dynamite of thought to the scriptures and ideas the Hindus hold dear.
