ABSTRACT
This paper aims at exploring Gandhi's attitude to untouchables through the narrative of Mulk Raj Anand's Untouchable. As literary work and historical document interrogate and correlate each other in order to decipher History, I juxtapose B. R. Ambedkar's "what congress and Gandhi Have Done to the Untouchables" as a historical document and Anand's Untouchable as a literary work in order to interrogate and correlate each other.
