This translation of the Tamil novel Sangati is a fine example of Dalit writing, and flouts any received notions of what a novel should be. It has no plot in the normal sense, nor any main characters. In terms of structure, it seeks to create a Dalit-feminist perspective and explores the impact of a number of discriminations--compounded above all, by poverty--suffered by Dalit women.
