The book is brutally honest and narrates how untouchability and caste discrimination was faced by people and suprisingly even talks about the MIM party roots, their functioning of rape, loot and mass conversions of Dalits in Andhra and Telangana in 1940 era.
Its a tribute by a son to the superhuman being called "Father".
A must read.
I first want to thank Mr.Pa Ranjith director of "KABALI" movie, where in the Rajini's introduction shot, he was holding this book. As a grate fan of Ranjini and book lover, I was so keen to that scene. But some how forget to look at the book name and other stuff.. But the day came, where I am going thru the same scene, I passed the video and zoomed in the book cover page...... Its "My Father Baliah".
Immediately opened AMAZON and searched for that book, I got it as expected from amazon with excellent manner. Few weeks passed after purchasing the book, I was busy with other books and didn't opened this book at all. But The day came Sep - 16 2018, I just opened the book @ 1 AM and started reading it, I didn't noticed that its 5.10 AM in the morning stopped @ 102nd page even though I am not interested to stop.. But my wife shouted at me that time, you will go MAD....!!!! :) :) :).
The next day some where around 11 PM I have opened the book again, and 2:30 I am done till 202 page. I was again curious to read further, but the same thing happened with my wife on the second day too...!!! :). Next day morning opened while getting ready to office and finished it.
Coming to the book now:
It's a great story of Mr. Baliah who wants his next generations should reach to high levels in their life and the only one tool to reach that peak is education. He believed in that and he never give up to reach that goal, till his last breath. I am so glad to the children of Baliah, who believed his father's goal and his word and they also never give up to reach their father's dream... If I don't stop writing now.. i may write the whole book here.
5* rating... is toooo cheap and small for this book. Its one of the best books that you should hold in your books rack and should insist your kids to read at least once in their life.
This Book manages to give a message for socitetal change without being revolting.
My father Baliah - A long, yet inspiring book.
It depicts how education transforms a generation's lifestyle and about a determined father who wants his children to be well educated at any cost.
This book has lots and lots of names which is is difficult to go by the stream, but one can catch up the phase by reading along.
The only reason I chose this book is that, it appeared in the movie, the name is #Kabali.
