ABSTRACT:
This paper is an attempt to suggest ways to recover and put to good use a Gramscian methodology that recognizes the presence of the subaltern in new contexts and at times different from those analyzed by Gramsci himself, especially in the context of India. During the past few years a major change has been taking place: the emphasis seems to have shifted from Dalits’ mere awareness of their “oppression”, towards the mobilization of consciousness as a “transforming agents” of subalternity, and hence toward a new path taking them from “desperate cries” to liberating action. In this paper, we have tried to shed some lights on the questions; 1) Why are Dalits a proto-type of Gramscian Subalterns, 2)Whether with Gramscian methodology, is it possible to recover those “traces” present in the fragmented history of these groups so as to detect the vital elements that will assist them in overcoming their subalternity.
