Abstract
When Damu was doing his yeskar duty, one day an upper caste women’s dead body was found in a well and it is said that she has committed suicide. Damu was asked to guard the dead body though he didn’t eat food since morning. Here the author gives us a clear picture of humiliation that Dalits face in the hands of government officials like policemen and revenue officials. Damu was asked to take the corpse out from the well but he refused to do it. The rebellious nature and his attitude towards injustice and his reaction against the discrimination are seen here. In the first section Up Against the Bondage, he is seen as a courageous rebel who refuses to follow the traditional duties of yeskar, imposed through the ages on the Mahars of rural Maharashtra. Through his reactions he makes it quite clear that these duties were below human dignity. Running barefoot, without any consideration of heat and rain, as an escort in front of the riding officer and heralding his arrival in the village was simply an act his inner self revolted against with all the vehemence at its command.

Key words: Untouchability, marginalization, ostracism, dignity, assertion, existentialist predicament.
