INTERROGATING MY CHANDAL LIFE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A DALIT (Sage/Samya, Rs 550) by Manoranjan Byapari begins its exploration of identities from the title itself. The book follows Byapari's journey from the Partition that forced his family to relocate to Calcutta, through the tumults of the Naxal movement and the Bastar revolution headed by Shankar Guha Neogi - both of which Byapari was part of - to his rise as an established author. Sipra Mukherjee has done a commendable job of translating the original.
