 SUMMARY OF PROJECT REORT

           In Contemporary Hindi Literature Autobiography has developed into a powerful form of prose. Autobiographies were not in Vague in the ancient days. But now a days Dalit and Women use autobiography as a powerful weapon to shatter male chauvinism and the supremacy of the forward Cast and thus give a right direction to their fight. The independent decisions taken by writers like Chandrakiran sonraxa and Sushila Takbhaure in their lives is an illustration to this. They have succeeded in building upon identity of their own. Autobiography is being used as a weapon to fight against the injustices and evil customs prevailing in society. The readers also are being induced to do it and also enabled to think so. The in equalities and injustices prevailing in Culture, Literature, Heredity, Humour, Law and Film Industry are being raised in the form of questions before the reader.

The above writers expressed their protest through their works. In their works the tone of opposition is lucid. No where in these works do we see an iota of disappointment. They are proud of their achievements. Over and above the level of writers they also have succeeded at the level of motherhood. Sushila Takbhaure is the writer who through her works has revealed the bitter experiences of the life of a women along with the realities of Dalit life. In addition to the curse of being a women she also lived bearing the curse of being a Dalit. Sushila Takbhaure and Chandrakiran Sonrixa were compelled to stay at the lower strata of Society for the single reason that they are women. Along with the performance of all the roles entrusted to them by society they went ahead with their works.
