Angaliyat, a child whose mother leads him by the hand to his stepfather’s house, is a metaphor for the social position of the Vankars, a Dalit community. A cornerstone of Dalit literature, this first Dalit novel set in rural Gujarat of the 1930’s draws attention to its own Dalit aesthetics and ideology. Rich in local idioms and expressions, the novel explores the ethos, fears and aspirations of the Vankar community. Significant from several points of view, the novel provides a view of the history from below.Caught in external and internal forms of colonization the community of weavers, the Vankars, is subject to oppression from the more powerful upper caste of the Patels. The writing critiques systems of internal colonization of the land.
