ABSTRACT:
Background: Dailts have always been a marginalised section of the society. When it comes to listing their contributions to the society before and even after independence. Exclusion of Dalit contributions from textbooks, magazines and specially our history have pushed the Dalit intellects to shape emancipatory politics in India. Aim: In this article the history books from NCERT (Central level Government textbooks) and state textbooks from Uttar Pradesh were analysed. The objective of this paper is to scrutinise the history books from the lens of caste and gender. Method: It is a sociological analysis of how exclusion of marginalized section of society has been taught in centre and state history textbooks. Results: The published case studies, researches, publications and textbooks were thoroughly studied by us and it came to ourinference that a significant amount of discrimination has been done to Dalit’s by ignoring their contributions to the society. Conclusion: Exclusion of their struggles, contributions and identity crisis from out history books is causing class-based discrimination and significant ignorance to the Dalit community. During the course of recovering the history of Dalit struggles for discrimination, caste violence, exclusion and negligence from society, Dalit studies have outlined significant agendas to reconsider the assumptions of Indian society.
