A gripping story of the Harijan community of a typical temple-town in southern India.
Although Lakshmi's story is set against the background of the Gandhian movement for freedom. Lakshmi comes to realize that for her - as for the countless despised ' Children of God' in India - there is still no freedom from the bondage of centuries of custom.
..a gripping, heartrending and totally credible tale in just a few pages. The Times of India
