An Autobiography mainly records the personal accounts of one's life. Usually Autobiographies are written either by the celebrities or the achievers, but Dalits are commoners among the commonest, in fact they haven't been treated as individuals throughout the centuries. Literally the word ‘Dalit' means suppressed and exploited. Dalits are the outcaste and voiceless people whose position is pushed lesser than the animals throughout the centuries. This is mainly because of their lack of awareness of being human beings who also deserve the dignified living in the society. Once they realised this, they started questioning the basic foundations of the system where they have been humiliated and exploited. This awareness has given voice to the voiceless people and because of this awareness only they honestly narrated their pain, humiliation and also self in their writings especially in Autobiographies.
