Add to Calendar Europe/Paris Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern India

Like one in six people in India, Sujatha Gidla was born an untouchable. While most untouchables are illiterate, her family was educated by Canadian missionaries in the 1930s, making it possible for Gidla to attend elite schools and move to America at the age of twenty-six. It was only then that she saw how extraordinary – and yet how typical – her family history truly was. A moving portrait of love, hardship, and struggle, ‘Ants Among Elephants’ is a personal history of modern India, told from the bottom up.
