“I GREW UP IN THE untouchable slum of Elwin Peta in Kakinada. All around me was abject poverty. When you are surrounded by so much misery, you don’t see it as anything extraordinary.”
Sujatha Gidla, Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern India

“A nation is not the soil. A nation is the people.”
Sujatha Gidla, Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern India

“The night before, Bharati had been sitting at the entrance of her hut studying for the exam with a small kerosene lamp for light. Her mother was asleep on the ground outside. They were so poor they couldn’t afford a lamp with a glass cover over the flame. Bharati dozed off. The lamp fell over. Kerosene spilled. The hut caught fire. Thirteen-year-old Bharati, the daughter of the martyr Noble, was consumed in the blaze.”
