People focus on the twofold systems framed by man namely male/female, man/living thing, well-off/poor, privileged class/ unprivileged class, and superior race/ inferior race and so on. Based on this twofold systems created by man, he is not ready to get rid of these twofold systems to lead an equal sharing tranquil life. The paper tries to uncover the trauma of the Dalit community in the novels by three authors, the first two writers belong to Dalit community and their representation is compared with the views of a non-Dalit writer like Arundhati Roy. The women characters of Dalit writers undergo a direct subjugation where as Ammu, the protagonist of the novel ‘The God of Small Things’ underwent a great distress because of her contact with a Dalit community man Velutha.
