“There is an extremely worse and very painful condition of Dom Caste in Bihar State in comparison to any other caste in any other state,” said India’s first President Dr. Rajendra Prasad on December 26, 1951, at Samastipur District (Bihar), when Jharni Das (Shibdhari Mallick) met him.
Working for the Dom Caste all-round development in social, political, spiritual education, and economic field, Jharni Das’s name will always be remembered as ‘JHARNI DAS KI JIWANI.’ This is the main theme of this book and ‘JHARNI DAS KI DIARY’ poem is true proof of untouchability and open voidance suffered by the people of Dom Caste. Jharani Das saw these incidents through his own eyes and had to face the curse on himself. The rest of the poems in this book are views of the author.
