Research Focus:
Arvind’s research aims at studying, perspectivizing, and legitimating resistance/protests initiated by oppressed communities—particularly Dalit communities, a community he belongs to—as an ethical imperative. Drawing from feminist/womanist methodology, liberation ethics, and Dalit studies, the research ventures into a liberative theo-ethical Dalit imagination in order to propose an “Ethic of the Street.”

Arvind is the author of “Church and Human Sexuality” (ISPCK, 2020). Given his passion for writing and music, he has his own blog “Reflections: Where the Personal is Political” and a YouTube channel.
