This is an autobiography by Kishor Shantabai Kale. The book presents tough lives and sufferings of women and their children in Kolhati caste. An author's painful journey towards success, inspires reader to never lose hope.

Biggest grouse with the book is that it doesn't go deeper than just describing the horrid lives of the women from the Kolhati caste. Neither is the book full of beautiful prose. It also has other issues like equating the value of a woman by how much she sacrifices for her husband.

Baluta by Daya Pawar is a way superior Dalit autobiography. This one is a major disappointment.

The book describes the tough lives of woman in kolhati caste. How men in the society do not do anything and force women including their wifes, daughters, sisters to such occupation and live on their earnings.

This book tells the reality about kolhati caste and author fight to become a doctor.
