Novel by Bama, who won the prestigious Cross Word Prize for her debut novel Karukku (Panamullu in Malayalam). Malayalam translation by Vijayakumar Kunissery.
Sangati relates the mindscape of a Dalit woman who steps out of her small town community, only to enter a caste-ridden and hierarchical society, which constantly questions her caste status. Realizing that leaving her community is no escape, she has to come to terms with her identity as an educated, economically independent woman who chooses to live alone. In relating this tale, Bama turns Sangati into the story not just of one individual, but of a pariah community.
