Namdeo Dhasal

Writer and Dalit Activist From Maharashtra, India. Namdeo Dhasal was born in 1949, in a small village Pur in Khed taluk near Pune, India. He and his family moved to Mumbai when he was six. A member of the Mahar caste, he grew up in dire poverty. He won the Padma Shri in 199 And a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Sahitya Akademi in 2004. In 2001, He made a presentation at the first Berlin International Literature Festival.
Eminent poet and close friend Dilip Chitre who called him the poet of the Underworld wrote the introduction to Golpitha. In an essay, Chitre wrote that that the work occupied "a position equal to that of T.S. Eliot's 'The Waste Land' not only in Marathi but in pan-Indian poetry and it could have been written only by a Dalit."
Dhasal held a National office in the Indian Republican Party, which was formed by the merger of all Dalit parties
In 1982, cracks began to appear in the Panther movement. Ideological disputes gained the upper hand and eclipsed the common goal. Dhasal wanted to engender a mass movement and widen the term Dalit to include all oppressed people, but the majority of his comrades insisted on maintaining the exclusivity of their organization.
The award-winning writer of ‘Golpitha’ — the collection that was Named after the prostitution neighbourhood in central Mumbai where he grew up — had a medical history of myasthenia gravis, a rare Auto-immune disorder. He had been in and out of hospitals since the Diagnosis of cancer.
