"The title says Bahujan but the commentators in the book discuss the idea of OBC literature. I don’t care for the OBC label. I don’t like the idea of referring to anyone as “Backward.” Can a successful OBC writer really be considered “Backward?”" Sep 04, 2019 08:40PM

A fun book with all the right ingredients for a children's mystery. There are rumors of treasure. There are secret passageways and hidden rooms. Danger. Adventure. Using one's wits. Thoroughly enjoyable.

"That's Entertainment..."
The author doesn't seem to take the story too seriously. It's an adventure with mysterious devices, mysterious organizations, and the usual narrow escapes. Enjoyable: yes. Serious literature: no. And that's OK.

“Caste system is the most brilliantly administered scam in history.”

Pete Buttigieg
“Good policy, like good literature, takes personal lived experience as its starting point. At its best, the practice of politics is about taking steps that support people in daily life—or tearing down obstacles that get in their way. Much of the confusion and complication of ideological battles might be washed away if we held our focus on the lives that will be made better, or worse, by political decisions, rather than on the theoretical elegance of the policies or the character of the politicians themselves.”
Pete Buttigieg, Shortest Way Home: One Mayor's Challenge and a Model for America's Future
