Abstract : Modern Indian literature has witnessed a significant rise in works that focus on the experiences of socially marginalised groups such as Dalits, Adivasis, and women. This genre, rooted in the socio-political movements of marginalised communities, has gained considerable traction among readers and scholars alike. Through oral narratives, autobiographical accounts, and translations, these voices have found a platform in contemporary literary discourse. This article explores the emergence, mechanisms, and impact of marginalised literature in India, highlighting its role in addressing identity, social prejudice, and economic marginalisation while fostering cultural recognition and social realism. Keywords : Marginalised literature, Dalit literature, Adivasi literature, Feminist literature, Social realism. Introduction : Modern Indian literature has experienced a surge in narratives that spotlight the social realities of marginalised communities, including Dalits, Adivasis, and women. This genre, often referred to as marginalised literature, has carved out a significant space in the literary landscape by presenting stories from the perspectives of those who have historically been oppressed and excluded. These narratives not only reflect the cultural and traditional heritage of these groups but also engage with contemporary socio-political issues, providing a voice to the voiceless. This article delves into the rise of marginalised literature, examining its origins, evolution, and the critical role it plays in modern Indian literature.
