This lecture will look at the treatment of the Dalit Body and Agency through A Gardener in the Wasteland (2011) and Bhimayana (2011). While looking at these two texts specifically, this lecture will explore how a graphic narrative can be a significant medium to create a discourse around the issue of representation when it comes to Dalits. It will look into the dominion of the body and its socio-cultural and political formation and, keeping the politics of agency in mind, explore the question of existence and belonging concerning the Dalit body.
