Upara(Marathi) meaning Outsider is considered an outstanding contribution to Marathi literature for its lively depiction of the life of the downtrodden and forceful style, authenticity of experience and its strong plea for social justice.
A landmark in Dalit literature, it gives a vivid account of the writer's struggle in life within the framework of Hindu Society's rigid stratification.
