Space / Justice / Interventions

Sunny M Kappikad

August 13, 2017

Philosopher, author and Dalit activist Sunny M Kapikkad analyses the condition of marginalised man through the concepts of space, justice and interventions. He exposes the fissures that appear when a people are denied space in society, and analyses through political, cultural and ethical lenses the friction between the imagination that encompasses all human history and the reality of space. Kapikad illustrates through experiences and insights gained through his public work how the Dalit movement may move forward and resist Indian fascism through moving beyond Gandhian and Marxian paths by employing Ambedkarite thought and the political possibilities of the constitution.
