Publisher : Navayana Publishers
Published : 2011

In these Poems on the Genocide in Eelam , edited by Ravikumar, five frontline Tamil poets Cheran, Jayapalan, Yesurasa, Latha, Ravikumar lament the loss of their land, their language and thousands of people. This powerful work demands that we not look away from the genocide in own backyard.

Review: This is Anand Teltumbde s analysis of the public, ritualistic massacre of a dalit family in 21st century India exposes the gangrenous heart of our society... This is not a book about the last days of relict feudalism, but a book about what modernity means in India. --Arundhati Roy

I would hope to see it read by every Indian activist and also foreigners who do not see how odious the caste system is. --Samir Amin

Teltumbde bears witness to the degradation of Indian democracy.
