About me

Introduction INSIGHT is published by a student group-Ambedkar Study Circle-of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. It is an open platform to address questions of caste discrimination and inequality, redress the widespread lack of representation of dalit experiences and reverse the silence regarding the contributions of dalits to all the spheres of national and international life. We also aim to popularize the rich and resilient alternative culture and politics of dalits and revisit dalit icons who have been consigned to the margins of brahminical history. We shall constantly strive to expose the hegemony in diversity that the brahminical social hierarchy imposes on national space. In doing so, Insight hopes to develop a positive sense of identity and community among marginalized sections of students. More importantly, Insight will be a space where the silence of the subaltern students will be broken. Experiences of marginalization, insensitivity and discrimination (both academically and socially) will find a welcome space along side moments reflecting the struggle, resistance and achievements of Dalit students.
