The objective of the book is not just to question Maslow's hierarchy of needs; or just to verify a hypothesis that the Dalits exhibit meta values and experience self-actualization in spite of unmet basic needs; or to prove that Ambedkar self-actualized in a discriminating world of his time; or to create awareness that the pastoral care and counselling has to recognize the presence of aliveness of the values among the Dalits; but to correct a historical misconception that Dalits are `broken people' and to affirm that the Dalits are self-motivated and potentially powerful to bring changes with their positive nature because they exhibit the innate and nurtured divine values.
