Some of them own high-end cars, some others own restaurants or hospitals — the only difference here is that these are entrepreneurs who rose above the vicious clutches of caste discrimination to make a mark in the business world and they are proud of their Dalit or Adivasi identity. Dalit Enterprise, a Delhi-based digital magazine that features these entrepreneurs has just one motto that they go by, “Our dream is to feature as many 100 Dalit and Adivasi billionaires in our magazine and to promote Dalit capitalism in the economy,” says Chandra Bhan Prasad, an entrepreneur himself and the magazine’s editor. The monthly English magazine features as many as 12 to16 Dalit business magnates in an edition and narrates their story of success in an attempt to inspire Dalits to enter the cutthroat world of business. “We have a set format of how we go about things. First, we ask them about their childhood and family. Then, we ask about their success story and lastly, about their business models,” says Chandra Bhan, who released the first edition in February this year along with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
