2593 : Reading list 2019 : #27 Outcaste by Matampu Kunhukuttan

I liked this book because it told me more about my roots (Kerala Brahmins) than I ever previously knew.

As I read the book, I shriveled in the fact that I sometimes am unsure if I should even wear my identity (not that I do, but still....in a country like India, you are your ilk!!...can't escape that).

This book singes, it hurts and at various points, it just cuts like a butcher's knife.

Is it a great read? If you are interested in identity politics like me, "yes", else it might just seem too self-involved.

Overall 8 on a scale of 10. It does shake your core, especially since it is based on a true story.

Brings my 2019 reading total to 4829 pages.
