Dalit literature in India exposes the hitherto unknown facets of social reality, and, in doing so, adds new dimension to creativity. This collection of ten short stories in Indian English depicts the evils of caste system and its maddening effects on the individuals. These men and women, struggling stoically against the hostile circumstances, hardly know the fact that it is not the Fate or Providence that defies their efforts to survive but the social structure in which they are trapped perpetually. Set in the various Indian regions, representing the nation as a whole, the stories evoke profound pathos and pleasure of acquaintance with desperate men and women in India suffering from the pangs of untouchability. Narrated in a lucid style, they occasionally evoke sarcastic overtones.
