Untouchables : My Family’s Triumphant Journey Out of the Caste System in Modern India by Narendra Jadhav

I have to admit I only read the first 50 pages of this book. Nevertheless, the fictional account of life in India’s lower castes, A Fine Balance by Rohatyn Mistry, is ten times more informative and hundred times more interesting. “Untouchables: My Family’s Triumphant Journey” confirmed that “A Fine Balance” may be fictional, but it certainly is not fictitious.
