(The Book) movingly traces a family’s struggle to challenge the caste system in India…………. provides a concise, extremely readable introduction that opened my eyes to Indian culture, both beautiful and dark, and described the rise of a social political movement in the last Century that it is still striving to grant the “untouchables” their true, human rights.
