Flowers on the Grave of Caste by Yogesh Maitreya is the first English Dalit short story collection in India. In India, adding to the development of Dalit literature in the English language, this short story collection is a significant contribution since, in the domain of fiction, it has introduced Dalit/ Ambedkari perspective as a literary imagination. It contains six short stories, and most of them portray the internal complex of a Dalit youth in urban spaces, and them leading to assertion against caste.
