Synopsis: This book is the result of the author's travels to meet with and talk to India's once-criminal - now denotified - tribes all over the country. Dilip D'Souza examines the lives of these people and explores what it means to brand entire communities criminal, to live your life treated as a criminal simply because you are born in that community. The book also traces the historical and political reasons certain tribes were notified 'criminal' by the British, the constitutional attempts to denotify them after Independence and their current situation.

About the Author: A one-time software professional, Dilip D'Souza now writes for a living in Bombay.

Bibliography. Index. "How many of us know that there are millions of Indians, by some estimates 25 million, who were once branded 'criminal' by the law, and continue to live their lives even today under the burden of such a stereotype? It's a startling thing, if you think about this and about the power of such a stereotype: how it affects those who suffer it and how it influences those who believe it. "Branded by Law raises such issues and demands such thought from all of us. It is the result of the author's travels to meet with and talk to India's once-criminal-now denotified-tribes all over the country. In this book, Dilip D'Souza examines the lives of these people and explores what it means to brand entire communities criminal, to live your life treated as a criminal simply because you are born in that community. The book also traces the historical and political reasons certain tribes were notified 'criminal' by the British, the constitutional attempts to denotify them after independence and their current situation.
