When you are a female born into a poor Indian family, the odds are already stacked greatly against you.

The human drama captured in this memoir is nothing short of amazing – the struggle between the two worlds of one's existence. Written with raw honesty and grit, this is a deeply moving memoir of a young woman confronting her 'untouchable' status and her aspirations for a good future.

About the Author

The daughter of a housemaid and an elephant chaser from a South Indian village, Shilpa Raj believes now that from the beginning she was destined to take a different path. At sixteen, her need for self-discovery drove her to begin writing this moving memoir of her turbulent past.

Shilpa Raj completed high school with distinction in 2011—the first in her family to do so—and received a Master’s degree in psychological counseling.
