Sinopsis de GANDHIAN NONVIOLENT STRUGGLE AND UNTOUCHABILITY IN SOUTH INDIA: THE 1924-25 VYKOM SATYAGRAHA AND MECHANISMS OF CHANGE (MIND ASSOCIATION OCCASIONAL SE) de :

In the 1920s, in the south Indian village of Vyko m, a nonviolent struggle sought to open to everyone the roads surrounding the Brahmin temple there. For centuries, any person or animal could walk those roads but not the so-called untouchable Hindus, whose use of the roads would pollute the high castes. From April 1924 to November 1925, Gandhi wag ed a satyagraha to put an end to this blatant discrimination. Gandhi believed that the Vykom struggle would eliminate severe practices of untouchability, unapproachability, and unseeability, as the nonviolent activists would convert the high castes by sheer force of character and suffering. Within a decade of the Vykom campaign, a narrative emerged that corroborated Gandhi's beliefs and cited the success of the satyagraha as testimony to his methods. This mythic narrative has persisted to this day- yet fresh evidence presented by King shows that Gandhi's confidence was misguided, and the vol unteers' suffering was ineffective in converting the upper-caste orthodoxy. This book for the first time explores what actually happened at Vykom, including its controversial settlement. Correcting misunderstandings, it addresses the rarity of conversion as a mechanism of change, and evaluates shor tcomings of Gandhi's leadership.
