Bakha is a proud and attractive young man, but he is an outcast in a system that is only slowly changing and was as cruel and debilitating as apartheid. Into the re-creation of one day in the life of this sweeper and latrine cleaner, Anand pours a vitality and richness of detail that have earned him acclaim as his country's greatest revealer of the 'other' India.


I read this book while living in India, and the most shocking thing is that while it was first published in 1935, there are still Untouchables living like this in modern India. Only recently the government decided to modernize all latrine systems that are still manually cleaned. This account of one day in the life of an Untouchable is truly worth reading.

Das Buch ist heute eingetrudelt. Vielen Dank dafür. Dann werde ich mal von dem jungen Mann auf dem Cover verführen lassen. Ich bin noch bei einem Buch in der Mitte, das lese ich zu Ende und dann kann es losgehen.

Das Buch war etwas schwierig zu lesen für mich, deshalb hat es auch länger gedauert, da ich nicht so geübt bin in englisch zu lesen. Soll sich aber bessern, weil ich mehr lesen will.
Erschreckend war dieses Kastendenken für mich. Das hat mich beim Lesen wütend gemacht.
Ein lesenswertes Buch.
Wenn die Adresse da ist, geht es weiter auf die Reise.
Danke für dieses Übungs-Angebot ;-)

Angekommen, dankefein! Bin schon recht gespannt, lese eben gerade noch "Poor Economy", wo das Thema Kasten zum Teil auch angeschnitten wird.

Das Buch ist gut bei mir angekommen - vielen lieben Dank!
Im Moment staut sich bei mir alles ein wenig, aber da es ein RAY ist, bei dem momentan noch niemand nach mir kommt, hoffe ich, es ist ok, wenn ich es erst nach den anderen Dinge lese.

This book is really interesting, as - like the general European - I didn't know a lot about the untouchables and their life. It was hard to bear to see how unfairly they are treated and under what conditions they have to live. I already knew before reading this book that there are still untouchables nowadays, as I have seen a film in which there were some and a report on TV about one of them. I really hope that someday soon Gandhi's dream will come true!
