    To whom this may concern,

    I am working on sexual violence issues in India and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to highlight the experiences of the Dalit and their troubles with the legal system. Please feel very free to contact me at:

    Dear Savari Authors,
    I’m looking for testimonies of Dalit women for a book I’m working on. How can I get in touch with any of you? Warm regards, Joanna

  3. Julia Hauser says:

    Dear Savari authors,

    I am a German historian working on a topic in which Rukmini Devi, whom I find a rather complex figure, is important. I have just read with great interest Sreebitha P V’s article on “Sanskritization or Appropriation: Caste and Gender in “Indian” Music and Dance”, and I would be glad to email her personally with some questions.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, sincerely,

    Julia Hauser
