Datta Bhagat

Datta Bhagat is a noted Marathi playwright and one of the leaders of the Dalit theater movement in Marathi. He is a professor of Marathi at the Ambedkar Marathwada University in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.

His play Avart (whirlpool) was critically acclaimed for its use of the traditional forms of dindi and tamasha to reflect on Dalit oppression against the background of a pilgrimage to Pandharpur.[1] He is also noted for his literary criticism, particularly the essay Dalit chetna aur Marathi Dalit Rangmanch (Dalit consciousness and Marathi Dalit theater).
