  • Sure !! Lets go in your room and check it.
  • It says that we have to write about our favorite books and why we like them. which book shall I choose ?
  • I think you should write about the book " Gulamgiri" Come with me I'll show you.
  • She takes out the book from the shelf ..........
  • This book was written by Jyotiba Phule. It is considered one of the first tracts against the caste system.
  • Okay !!
  • Published in 1885, it critiques the institution of caste through a 16-part essay and four poetic compositions, and it is written in the form of a dialogue between Jotiba, and a character he calls Dhondiba.
  • Okay !!
  • He dedicated his book Gulamgiri to the American movement to free slaves, he linked the conditions of the black slaves in America with those of the lower castes in India. I think you should read this book because it will make you aware of this poor situation of lower casts in the past.
  • Ok mom . I will definitely read it and write about this book.
  • She goes to her room and reads the book and completed her homework.
