The book entitled Encyclopaedia of Untouchables, Ancient, Medieval and Modern compiled in 2 volumes witnesses to the fact that how the Brahminical ideology used to behave with the poor people of the Father which is totally unbearable to a normal person, even though they used to clean the cities, latrines, skin of the dead animals which were owned by the Brahmans. Hence, the Dalit literature is not a simple literature, it is associated with a movement to bring about a change in the society by working personally to realize the basic facts of the life, but Brahmans are only the philosophers of their literature, working for their personal benefit not for others. It has established its own strong tradition with anti-caste or untouchables thinker like Buddha, Ved Vyash, Valmiki, Qutab-ud-Din Aebik, Balban, Balban, Firoz Shah Tuglaq, Barani the great writer, Amir Timur, Sultan Sikandar of Kashmir, Zain-ul- Abidin, Mirza Haidar Dughlat, Babar, Ravidas, Akbar, Guru Nanak, Kabir, Phule, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, many more as its sign posts.
