Shadow of Atrocity



Dalit women are raped, paraded naked and killed by opressor castes. Dalit men have to face physical violence from the Brahmanical opressor castes. Dalit houses are burnt by opressor caste Brahmins and other opressors caste Hindus all over India as an act of punishment for the mere aspiration of living a dignified life. Entire Dalit settlements are burned to ashes just for existing. A 2010 National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) report finds a crime against Dalit is perpetrated every 18 minutes, 3 Dalit women are raped, 2 Dalits are murdered and 2 Dalit houses are burned every day. In addition, according to National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), India, there was a 27.3% increase in crime against Dalit from 2009 to 2018. Dalit possessions and shelters are set on fire as well as their identities, dreams, and future turned into ashes. The color of ash in artist’s work is symbolic of this oppression against Dalits. The landscape metaphorically depicts violence, discrimination, humiliation, oppression, and exploitation of the oppressed Dalit community.
