ABOUT THE BOOK:- The book "Mapping Human Rights and Subalterns in Modern India" attempts to trace the dynamics of human rights discourse and the rights of subalterns in modem India. It critically evaluates the notion of exclusion of subalterns in modem India from the mainstream social system and the present development model. The world we live in is rapidly witnessing modernity,post modernity and globalisation and has become a global village. In contrast to this, there has also been steep rise in discrimination based on caste, class, race, gender, region, religion, ethnicity and so on.Thebook arguesthat it is not merely Indian social inequities but also globalisation and current development model have equally deprived the rights of dalits, women, tribals, minorities and so on. Therefore, the rights of marginalised sections which are enumerated in the India's Constitution are under a serious threat. The book further focusses on the plight of slum dwellers in metropolitan cities and migration of the poor from the backward regions to metropolitan cities which describes the violation of fundamental rights of subalterns in modem India. It lays emphasis on the importance of vernacular literatureand writings from the grassroots level resisting the social inequalities and against current development model. The book deals with the vitality of vernacular languages in India in the era of globalisation and their impact on subalterns.Acouple of research papers discuss the politics ofhuman rights in India and its trends and challenges. In other words, the volume raises very fundamental questions "Who's development & for whom? Who benefits and who pays the price for the development?
