The untold story of suffering…….. A searing narrative of a dalit family’s odyssey through oppression. …….. The story of an outcaste’s life is the untold history of India as well. Such stories never figured in the nationalist narratives. Reading the history of dalit suffering written by a dalit himself, opens our eyes to a dark era in Indian history.
