Journal of the Marginalized People
The Fourth World, Journal of the Marginalized People, aims at highlighting the worldly plight, problems and prospects of the marginalized people in India and elsewhere. These people constitute the Fourth World, the world within the third World and even within the Second and the First World.
The people of the Fourth World do not form a compact territorial community. They are forced to live wretchedly, en during exploitation, oppression, violence and numerous indignities. They inhabit all the worlds, no matter how these worlds are conceived and defined. The people of the Fourth World, voiceless as they are, support and sustain the other worlds by sacrificing their own identity, sustenance and solidarity.
The Fourth World, Journal of the Marginalized people seeks to give voice to the people of the Fourth World.
