Who was revolutionary Dalit poet Namdeo Dhasal really?

When a Dalitbahujan writer writes, there can be no shower of petals. There will be fire instead. For, how can you expect dignified language from them when Manuwad has torn their own dignity into shreds? This applies to Namdeo Dhasal too. But he started off as a Dalit Panther and eventually became a Shiv Sainik? How did that happen?
