Direction: Randhir Kumar

Synopsis: Outcaste, the story of the life of Sharankumar Limbale, is a first-person account of the struggle against poverty, deprivation, discrimination and violence. It captures the dehumanizing impact of caste oppression in Hindu society. In tracing the author's gradual awakening to selfhood and maturity, the play provides an inside view of life in a “Mahar village”. The narrator is haunted by the question of his fractured identity, “Am I an upper caste or an untouchable?” A Reflection of the darker side of India, this novel is a bitter Critique of the lack of Compassion that the lower castes have endured for centuries.
