A story simple in concept but deep in meaning and personality. A young untouchable boy deals with life in a society that pushes him to the deepest parts of inhumanity. You follow him as he simply tries to life, meeting the people and injustices he meets and finding yourself drawn in to his world.
It was a rather quick read it seems but then, I found it was hard for me to put this book down, so that might be just me. Simple and straightforward look at the Indian caste system even compared to today.
