Shetkaryaca Asud (The Whipcord of the Cultivators) is a book written by Jyotirao Phule and published in 1881. It is a critique of the exploitation of shudra peasantry by a British and Brahmin bureaucratic alliance.

The book gives a few of the numerous reasons connected with the religion and politics that had put the Shudra farmers in such a pitiable condition. It argues that a tyrannical religion, the dominance of Brahmin employees in government departments and the luxury-loving indolence of British administrators meant that the Shudra farmers were tormented and deceived.
