The recent elections in Uttar Pradesh, the largest province/state in India have shed light on the shifting paradigm of caste based politics in India.
Some facts I discovered after writing the novel. In English language fiction based in India or Indian’s there is little with about the Shudra castes, the untouchables of the Hindu faith. My protagonist Karam is the only contemporary fictional lead in an English book that I could find. It both shocked and surprised me.
