Description

In How Are You Veg? for the first time the stories of the Madigas community have been translated into English. Twenty-two stories expose the caste hierarchies and practices that exploit women irrespective of their class and educational background, economic success, and professional status. Women with disabilities receive the harshest of treatments from their families and the institutions established to help them. Caste discrimination also infiltrates and contaminates the food that is cooked and shared among peers leading to the most important question; How Are You Veg?
