Abstract: Abstract The paper is a debate on the ‘Kerala Model’. This trajectory of Kerala Development Model has been hailed for the substantial gains made by Malayali people. However, the marginalization of the non-malayali working population who were brought to Kerala, were not adequately addressed. The paper looks at the dynamics of the marginalization of plantation workers, who fought in the chengara land struggle, who are also dalits, landless and have an abjected life in the plantations.
