Not as powerful as Valmiki's 'Joothan' or as caustic as Murli's 'Untouchable'. Moon's Mahar background is relatively more priveleged and less deprived than that of paraiyars or bhangis but it offers nonetheless an insight into the Ambedkarite tradition of Dalit thought and experience common in Western India, along with the Buddhist influence that isn't found as strongly elsewhere.
wanna learn more about caste system in india? it's a good one to read
Though the pacing of this book is a bit uneven, it is about a topic which I knew very little about. I tried to read this and not to be too upset at the caste system.
pretty good, alittle confusing at times, but overall really interesting
