We are adivasi, bahujan and dalit women. Here we share our thoughts about our lives and the society we live in, including conflicts with the self, family and community. These are perspectives from our history, and our dreams for the future. Here we are in conversations with each other, with the men from our communities, and others. Inspired by our foremothers, the free spirited, knowledge bearing, community healers of the Saura people, this space is named Savari. Savari group: Authors and Organizers.

Members of Savari continue the traditions of  the anti-caste struggles of our ancestors, elders, sisters and brothers from all parts of South Asia. The dream of an equal world underlies each and every conversation here. If you are one of us -adivasi, bahujan or dalit (irrespective of religion) from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and would like to be an active member, please contact us. If you are someone who would like to engage with us in these conversations, we welcome you in the belief that you come here from a place of respect, concern and awareness that this space is primarily guided by gender justice and anti-caste perspectives.

    great efforts, i strongly believe without eliminating caste and its ideology of inequality one cannot talk about equality and justice. i do not see gender and caste in opposition as seen and believed in academics or in general people understanding. any movement which is to eliminate gender differences must and is also against caste and anti caste movement itself are to eliminate gender differences. what is important is to reject caste in all its forms and gender is one of them. the source of all problems is ideology and the source is brahminism. reject, resist, protest against brahminism. all those who see gender and caste as different and in opposition are the one who always wants to preserve caste through gender.

  2. PRASHANT says:

    it is only through gender in general and control over women body that men have been able to preserve the order of inequality in all forms. if women are liberated it will bring peace, justice, equality in the world. it is through control over their bodies they have succeeded in preserving the very structures of exploitation, suppression, violence. if women are free they will crumble down all other inequalities. in india caste is reproduced, retained through control over women body. women are controlled so that they keep producing different and graded human beings.

  10. More power to you! I’m Project Director of Child’s Play (India) Foundation that seeks to achieve social empowerment through music education. We teach disadvantaged children to play orchestral instruments, in the process learning much more than just that. This has been tried in other parts of the world with spectacular results (notably in Latin America).
    While musical excellence is one of the aims, I was motivated to begin this because I was (and continue to be) disturbed by social disparity and injustice.

    Keep up your good work, and I’m a fan already of your initiative!
