In the new memoir “Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern India” author Sujatha Gidla takes us through four generations of her family---touching on topics such as politics, poverty and gender inequality in Indian society. When she was growing up, untouchables were the lowest of the low in a class system that was as complex as it was oppressive. So what did it mean to be an untouchable, and what does it mean now—nearly 70 years after the classification was legally abolished? The book has just been published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
