Aaron Micah is elevated to a bishop. His origin is shockingly traced back to the Pulaya (Untouchable) community. In a brilliant narration, which goes back and forth, the author keeps the reader firmly engrossed in the twists and turns which occur in Micah's life and in the lives of his ancestors. This book attempts to bring to the fore the below-the-surface caste tensions prevalent among the Syrian Christians of Kerala. Christianity preaches equality among all but its followers do not follow the tenants. A real edge of the seat narration,especially when it comes to the conflict between Rome and the local church authorities to designating the Bishop.
