Vemula’s scathing comments on Patel reservation, CPM’s stand on reservation in the private sector  and SFI’s soft Hindutva stand at HCU are incorporated in the book.

“The protest that has been triggered by Rohith Vemula’s suicide is unparallel in the country after the Mandal commission protests.” says Mr O.P. Raveendran who edited the book.
