Description This is an English translation of a Marathi social activist Mahatma Joti Rao Phule's work "Slavery" released on the death centenary of this great social reformer. Emancipation of scheduled castes and disadvantaged sections of society from the clutches the Brahminical priestly class is the main thesis of this work. The English translation rendered is diligent, precise and almost perfect in respect of Marathi usages and highly communicative to the non-Marathi readers. The glossary of certain Marathi proverbs and phrases explains their meaning at the end after using these usages in original in the text. The translated work reflects the revolutionary zeal of the original writer and his bitter exposure of the upper caste tyranny[edit]
