Republic of Caste - Book Launch

Republic of Caste - Thinking Equality in the Time of Neoliberal Hindutva by Anand Teltumbdee

Book Launch and Discussion

Navayana & Lamakaan invite you to the launch of Anand Teltumbde's opus, Republic of Caste: Thinking Equality in the Time of Neoliberal Hindutva. It is truly a new kind of history of post-independence India. We could well call it "India After Ambedkar" but then Teltumbde is not beholden even to the cult of Ambedkar, while he hugely draws from Ambedkar. Teltumbde is unafraid of taking what seems an unconventional position on reservation, naxalism or even the Constitution. For instance, he has often argued that reservation for Dalits has, in fact, stigmatized them and consecrated caste in India’s polity.

The book, featuring a foreword by the historian Sunil Khilnani, will be launched in Hyderabad on 24th June Sunday at 7 pm at Lamakaan.

Teltumbde will be in conversation with historian Bhangya Bhukya of University of Hyderabad;
Kalpana Kannabiran, Director of Council for Social Development;
and Social Activist & Research Scholar, HCU, Firduas Soni.

About the Book:
Commanding in its scope, revelatory and unsparing in argument, Republic of Caste amounts to a new map of post-Independence India. Anand Teltumbde identifies the watershed moments of its journey: from the adoption of a flawed Constitution to the Green Revolution, the OBC upsurge, the rise of regional parties, and up to the nexus of neoliberalism and hindutva in the present day. Joining the dots between a wide range of events on the ground and the prevailing structure of power, he debunks the pieties of state and Constitution, political parties and identitarian rhetoric, to reveal the pernicious energies they have unleashed and their dire impact on India’s most marginalised people, the dalits.

The exclusion and disempowerment of dalits emerges as intrinsic to India’s republican system, whether expressed through state policies on education, agriculture and land ownership, or the tacit encouragement of caste embedded in both law and political practice. Here, the carrot of reservations comes with the stick of atrocities. As a politics of symbolism exploits the fissile nature of caste to devitalise India’s poorest whilst appropriating their votes, Teltumbde’s damning analysis also shows progressive politics a way out of the present impasse.

About Anand Teltumbde:
Anand Teltumbde is a civil rights activist and a columnist with the Economic & Political Weekly. Among his many books are Dalits: Past, Present and Future, Mahad: The Making of the First Dalit Revolt and The Persistence of Caste: The Khairlanji Murders and India’s Hidden Apartheid. He teaches at the Goa Institute of Management.

13Years ANaxalite’s Prison Diary

Lamakaan Programming Team
13 Years: A Naxalite’s Prison Diary by Ramchandra Singh—book launch

Navayana and Lamakaan invite you to the launch of Ramchandra Singh's 13 Years: A Naxalite’s Prison Diary.

Civil rights activist B. Anuradha, chronicler of the Naxalite movement Sumanta Banerjee, political scientist K.Y. Ratnam and Virasam co-founder Varavara Rao will discuss the book.

About the book:

September 1970. Ramchandra Singh enters the Hardoi District Jail in Uttar Pradesh as a Naxalite undertrial. Barely twenty, his life of expanding prospects—in studies, politics and love—is reduced to the horizon of a life term. The odds are stacked against the survival of his humanity and imagination, but Singh regenerates his gifts of empathy, humour, reflection and, above all, language—in a secret diary smuggled out with the help of friends.

A singular record of recent history and of an individual witness, Singh’s prison diary, newly expanded, appears in English for the first time. Offering unprecedented intimacy with the everyday life of the imprisoned everyman, Singh challenges us to look without flinching and question our assumptions about crime and punishment.

Ramchandra Singh (1949–2018), of Bangarmau village in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh, was a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) Red Star and served on its Central Committee. He was part of the editorial board of Red Star Monthly (Hindi). He passed away when this book was in press.

Translator Madhu Singh is a professor in the Department of English and Modern European Languages, University of Lucknow. She has previously translated the scholar G.N. Devy’s work, A Nomad Called Thief, into Hindi as Ghumantu Hain Chor Nahin.

ENTRY FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!!!

K-Circle Quiz of the Month
Sat Jul 7, 4:30 PM
K-Circle Quiz Club
K-Circle is today India's oldest quiz club, formed in 1972, and is based in the twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad. This Saturday would be the K-Circle Quiz of the Month at Lamakaan which would be a lively, engaging and informally informative quiz session that anybody is welcome to attend!

A motley group, K-Circle is open to members of all ages. We are a truly informal club as we don’t have a form for new entrants to fill. There are no registrations, no frills, no badges, no pins/medals, no passwords. . . if you come in late, you just may have to perch on the window sill, but that's about it! The quiz would be a team event, with the teams being formed on spot. Do bring your friends and family along as well for what should surely be a thrilling Saturday evening!

K-Circle quizzes have the well-deserved reputation of being thoroughly researched, highly interesting and innovative (far removed from the mugging-from-GK books sort of quiz that is all too common hereabouts). We meet every Saturday at a pre-decided location in the twin cities.
Information regarding upcoming sessions is updated on the website - www.kcircle.com
As well as our Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/kcircle/
You can also add yourself to our subscribers' mailing list by sending an email to kckcircle@gmail.com.
