The first book titled Water, is set in the village where Bhim lived as a child. It describes his experiences growing up as he struggles to come to terms with his untouchable status, posing questions and mulling over answers which are not there. The second book titled Shelter, takes us into his young adulthood, where he is returning from Columbia University with an education in hand to Baroda.
