Abstract
This paper draws from the reading of Mahasweta Devi’s Water the dynamics of caste politics constructed on water distribution practices. The writer cuts through the politics of hegemony exposing the strategies of keeping intact the hierarchies of caste system. The characters’ perception of water varies as per their social status in caste system. Water coalesces as a powerful repressive strategy in a greed-driven system that has the sanction of a structural hegemony to thwart the progression of marginal communities as it is only through exploitation that caste apartheid is sustained. At the centre of the story, we have Maghai whose response to water politics forms a critical basis in understanding the resilience of the exploited communities towards oppression.
