It's a stirring call to destroy caste-based society. Chapters include "Communist Movement under the Upper Castes", Abolition of Caste as a Principle", "Philosophical Movements against Caste", "The Bhakti Movements", "Dalit Panthers", etc. "The message of the book is 'Dalits, be proud of yourselves, you have a history and culture of your own. Discover yourselves. Stand fast for your liberation. You will overcome some day - soon!'" (K. Rajaratnam in his introduction) Translated from Telugu, with a brief bibliography.
