About the Book: Serious Men
The lowest castes are the dalits (formerly known as untouchables) and many are still fobbed off with abysmal education, employment and housing. The anger and frustration that engenders provokes strife, and yet the wretched iniquities can also give rise to cruelly pointed comedy.
Serious Men's anti-hero is Ayyan Mani, a dalit living with his wife and child in a one-room Mumbai slum. Mani is one of the lucky few from his neighborhood in gainful employment. He works at the prestigious Institute of Theory and Research as a humble personal assistant, but simmers with resentment at the Institute's retinue of supercilious Brahmin scientists.
