This book is a collection of short stories set in a fictional Indian city. Each story told of a different character, generally someone oppressed by the class and caste systems of India and his/her struggles to escape those systems of oppression. It was a fairly discouraging read, as most characters ended up becoming a part of the system that was keeping them down. However, it was still a really good book and challenged the way I think about things and gave a very real sense of the social problems in India.
