The nature of the Flower Queen case demanded a quick recall of details, which was why I maintained a journal. This journal has now metamorphosed into this book, still retaining the original journal dates as chapter titles. We Indians, who pride ourselves in being educated and forward looking, are often totally hypocritical. We know that caste system and untouchability is evil; but do we allow our maids to ever sit with us in the living room or at table with us? For centuries, some communities of fellow Indians have been treated as less than human beings. You and I have no business to allow any custom that is a fallout of that period to continue. Be that as it may, this is the story of how I was swept along by the current of wanting to help Flower Queen and how I managed to muddle along. If I could do what I did, almost succeeding, you can do it even better.
