  • Description

    Karukku is the English translation of Bama's seminal autobiography, which tells the story of a Dalit woman who left her convent to escape from the caste oppression therein.'

    Summary of the Book

    Her story took the world by storm. When Bama Faustina approached publishing houses in Tamil Nadu with the story of how she was discriminated against in the Catholic Church, they refused to publish her unpolished words. Undeterred, she took her story to the public on her own, and wove a tale of history, caste oppression and sociology to tell how women of so-called low castes are discriminated against in Convents even today. Shocking, since Caste is not a part of Christianity. The book draws readers into Bama's world, and rest assured, it is a world telling the poignant tale of a woman who has prevailed through sheer perseverence in the face of oppression and troubles throughout. Readers will enjoy the updated afterword, which reveals Bama's thoughts on her life ten years after the first publication of the book.

    Unbelievable

    Opened the pack today only to find a used book packed and sent to me. I went like what the heck? How could you? Doesn't seem like an accident, seems like a deliberate move by the seller.
