Late nineteenth century. Britain, the undisputed master of the Indian subcontinent, looks to control a rebellious multitude. They deem thuggery a hereditary defect, of those considered ‘born criminals’. Over two hundred communities across India are labelled as ‘Criminal Tribes’. They are forced into wired settlements, heavily monitored and subjected to humiliation. Post-independence, they are rechristened as Denotified Tribes. But the oppression continues. Identifying themselves as Vimukta or the liberated, the tribes that were imprisoned for generations have defiantly storied their freedom. This anthology, for the first time, collects their testimonies and the novel invocations of the Vimukta struggle.
