Negotiating Identity in Colonial India. The Case of Ramabai Mary Dongre Medhavi


Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach
VU University Amsterdam
This paper will focus on Pandita Ramabai’s attempt to question and expose the caste-race interlinkage prevalent in colonial India. Like her contemporaries, Ramabai too does seem to have believed that caste was a distinguishing feature of Indian society. Nevertheless, she apparently rejected the idea that it was a rigid and unchanging feature of Hinduism.
