|Description:||The idea for this book was initiated at a colloquium in the University of South Carolina where I presented a paper on dalit women in India. After a long-drawn question and answer session, several scholars asked me if I had written a book about Indian women, and that I should put most of my knowledge together and make it available inside one cover. The ideas expressed in this book have taken shape over many years. When, as a young PhD student, I went to work among the low-caste washermen community, in the narrow lanes and by lanes of Old Delhi, I realized that the lives of their women were very different from my own; yet, I could communicate with them as a person, as a human being and also, as a woman, and the many conversations I had over several years of my fieldwork have remained with me. At that time, my curriculum had not included anything on gender and my work had focused on economic aspects of their lives.|
