This volume brings to light the phenomenon of religious voices from the lowest orders of Indian society: Nandanar and Tirupan Alvar in the South; Chokhamela and his entire family in Marathi territory; and, most famous of all, Ravidas in the north. Each saint was born Untouchable and that fact is essential part of his and her life and song. The mixture of bhakti texts and contemporary comment results in an unusual and lively discussion of an important facet of Indian religious life.
