    1. I have read other works by Narayan and I agree with much of what he has to say about casteism, the BSP, and the way that women in Uttar Pradesh perceive their political identity. He fairly deals with the empowerment that BSP has brought to marginalized populations, while openly disagreeing with their reverse-caste policies and agenda. Used to research my final paper for my M.A. from Jackson School of International Studies.
