Dalit Common Sense against Hindutva

can help in keeping the emancipatory project alive in theoretical exercises.
In the last few pages of this volume, Pantham discusses problems faced by and the role expected of Indian political theorists. Following Kothari and Kaviraj he, too, emphasises that 'original' political theorisation of Indian society "can be found not in the writings of the academic social and political scientists but in the praxiological works of...thinker-leaders of our national/freedom movement" (p 186). While there is no need to contest this fact, it is not necessary to lament it either. Moral- political' theorisation of social reconstruction is very unlikely to follow from the exercise of professional academicians. Left to academicians, theory may only become more sophisticated and in the process less concerned with social reconstruction.
