Summary In this ethnographic account of Dalit politics in Tamil Nadu, the author discusses how caste considerations inform and underpin politics in the state. With its micro-empirical focus on the journey of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (Liberation Panthers Party) in Tamil Nadu, it also explores diverse dimensions of mobilisation and ways in which contentious politics alters political regimes
