(The book) recounts the Saga of a Dalit family’s relentless struggle for emancipation and the sweet taste of victory that finally comes their way when their struggle finally bears fruit……….. With a theme that evokes haunting memories of Alex Haley’s Roots, (this book) narrates the trials and travails of (an Untouchable) family. (The Author) is, in a way, also encapsulating the history of the whole Dalit movement in the country.
