This article intends to analyze the image of hunger in the work Akkarmashi by the renowned Dalit writer Sharankumar Limbale. The study identifies two kinds of hunger. The first is the Dalitís hunger for creating an identity- individual, familial, religious, economic, social, and political. The second is the Dalit womenís predicament of being the victim of hunger at different levels- the sexual and exploitative hunger of the high caste, oppressive and looting hunger of low caste men, the hunger of customs for existence, the physical hunger, and their own hunger for a better life with love and care. Thus the article intends to give a new outlook on the work.
