Eknath Awad’s Strike a blow to change the world

I learnt about the book from this article of Ram Guha. It had been in my To-Read list ever since. I finally managed to read the book. It is a very good read — moving at many places, luminous in its positivity and a searing, honest account of the struggles of a disadvantaged individual against the system. One can feel the voice, sincerity and honesty of Awad in the translation of Jerry Pinto; I assume reading it in the original Marathi would be much more impactful. My only complaint about the book is the lack of index; may be that would be fixed in the next edition. In any case, a good read and strongly recommended.
