Samya

Samya is an imprint of Bhatkal and Sen, a joint partnership of the Bhatkals of Popular Prakashan and Mandira Sen. Founded in 1996, it focuses on culture and dissent, which gives priority to the study of caste in a changing society, through scholarly analysis, its place in the creation of knowledge, and the writings of Dalits, often in translations into English. It weaves together scholarly analysis and the everyday experiences of activists, presenting a deeper understanding of social changes taking place today. Dissecting the system of privilege and oppression invites readers to participate in the ensuing debate. Hence they focus on contemporary issues and those of the past, examining the roots of injustice from the point of view of an underprivileged.
