Concept Note

Existence Peripheries is a terrain, where abandoned and exploited lives battle for survival. The precluded lot of the world gets suffocated as they are barred from the threshold of humanity, equality and freedom all together. How do those forsaken people get opportunities and gain a glimpse of joy, when life battles with new opportunities? The tango between the black and grey which often lingers through the lives of the uncared for, forces dark energies to surface and creates havoc. Our attempt is to seek the less cared for, less considered and conveniently kept out. It is
an endeavor of Don Bosco College, Mannuthy to say WE CARE. It in not about judging the other but affirming that we side with the sidelined and embrace with empathy.

Thrust Areas:

  • Subaltern literature and the representation of subaltern
  • Marginality and subjugation
  • Dalit literature, Dalit feminism and Dalit marginality
