Abstract

Bama is one of Dalit female writers of the oppressed classes. She has written many books. Her first novel titled Karukku, a semi-autobiographical book was published in 1992. She wrote two collections of short stories one titled ‘Kisumbukkaran’ appeared in 1994, and the other “Just One Word” published in 2017. Her novel titled Sangati was published in 1996 and ‘Vanmam’ was in 2003. Bama herself has experienced the exploitation and suppression because of her caste and gender in the patriarchal society. She tries to expose the miserable life of her ‘Paraiyar’ community and issues like caste, religion and gender in all her novels. Her stories and novels have given a graphic description of the lives of the Dalits. Bama gives expression to the sub-human treatment meted out to the lowest of the low castes – the Parayars. Bama’s work is a powerful voice of whole Dalit communities who struggle to overcome inequalities, suppression and exploitation which they been facing since times immemorial. In my paper, I shall try to highlight the exploitation and marginalisation against Dalit women because of caste and poverty and being Dalit women outside and inside the house
