    This book was originally published in Hindi with the title 'Bahujan Sahitya ki Prastavan" [Introduction to Bahujan Literature] in the year 2016. Its English translation was also published in the same year. This book presents a discussion on the concept of Bahujan literature in Hindi and Indian languages. On the one hand, this book monitors the changes taking place in Hindi literature, on the other hand, outlines the basic elements of the new debate that started in the field of literature in relation to the changing social and political scenarios after the implementation of the Mandal Commission. In today's Indian perspective, the Bahujan sections are – Other Backward Classes, Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes, Denotified Nomadic Castes, Pasmanda Minorities and Women. The concept of Bahujan literature sees similarity in all these sufferings and finds the causes of their exploitation more or less similar. This book is as important for the researchers of literature as it is for the conscious people who aspire to understand the literary perspective and also for those who consider themselves a part of the Bahujan community. This book answers all the questions related to Bahujan discourse.
    यह पुस्तक मूल रूप से हिंदी में वर्ष 2016 में 'बहुजन साहित्य की प्रस्तावना' शीर्षक से प्रकाशित हुई थी। उसका यह अंग्रेजी अनुवाद भी उसी वर्ष प्रकाशित हुआ था। यह किताब हिन्दी और भारतीय भाषाओं में बहुजन साहित्य की अवधारणा पर विमर्श प्रस्तुत करती है। एक ओर यह किताब हिंदी साहित्य में हो रहे बदलावों पर नजर रखती है दूसरी ओर मंडल कमीशन के लागू होने के बाद बदल रहे समाज व राजनीतिक परिदृश्यों के सापेक्ष साहित्य के क्षेत्र में शुरू हुई नई बहस के बुनियादी तत्वों को रेखांकित भी करती है।
