      very well writtem book. Neither too fast, nor slow. just apt speed of events. I liked the way book has been written in a matter-of-fact way. You get to know the struggles of a dalit family, and how they came to the upper strata of the society. A very nice read.

      A superbly edited book which is a record of a socially and financially downtrodden family which climbs up the social ladder in a span of three generations through the sacrifices, determination, belief in education and discipline. The author with his [families] life shows that, with staunch determination and education, once can rise above any difficulties in life.
