The Written World and Dalit Bahujan and Adivasi Women - SAVARI's Editor Sruthi Herbert

 

Gurinder Azad

SAVARI describes itself as: "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"

sruthi video interview

As part of the Ambedkar Age series of interviews and conversations on contemporary socio-political issues which affect the Dalit Bahujans, Gurinder Azad produced and recorded an interview with Sruthi Herbert, one of the editors of SAVARI, titled 'The Written World and Dalit Bahujan and Adivasi Women -- SAVARI's editor Sruthi Herbert'. 

Kuffir, Contributing Editor of Round Table India (http://roundtableindia.co.in/), conducted this interview.

Sruthi and Kuffir converse here about the 5 year journey of SAVARI, as a space created, developed and sustained by Dalit Bahujan and Adivasi women writers, translators and editors. And on the written world of marginalized women in a multilingual society, the challenges of building a community based on shared experiences in a caste society, Brahmin patriarchy etc.
