    Review The Branded Uchalya A First Hand Experience Of A Criminal Tribe UchalyaThe Branded Uchalya written by Laxman Gaikwad is originally written in Marathi that was later translated to English for getting the message conveyed to a larger audience Uchalya is an autobiographical novel that carries the memories of Laxman Gaikwad right from his childhood till he became an adult Laxman Gaikwad took birth in a criminal tribe of India belonging to Orissa Maharashtra This tribe named as Uchalya was labelled as criminal tribe by British under the Tribal Act of India.People belonging to Uchalya lived in their own world with their own systems Their major trade was looting and theft They had their own internal groups divided and a newborn kid was handed over or sold to one of these groups to groom as a perfect thief They had literally no living standards Laxman remembers his childhood days in this book as carrying a small piece of cloth that he used as his bed on bare land Nearby cattle urinating in the night used to flow the liquid to this cloth being used as bed when this urine used to wet the cloth or kid s body, it used to give him a warmth And that was only a relief point for those kids during the winter season They had no cemented building or roads They used to move from one place to another for land, food, trade, small kind of jobs etc.The tribe often used to get visits of police in search of stolen gold, and other valuable items Laxman was the only child in tribe who got admitted in a school nearby He remembers his embarrassing days there when he was the only child in the class from a low caste or tribe and rest of the students used to make fun of him Not only in school but the same happened to him within his tribe also where his family was scolded to break this trend of years of not sending any child to school There was no regular washing of clothes in this tribe Their clothes were used to be washed once in many months only when they used to get a chance to go near a river Otherwise Laxman used to put his piece of cloth that he used to sleep on, on the roof of his hut everyday morning after waking up This tribe had no cleaning mechanism or structured homes Their open space was utilized for multiple tasks at the same time On one hand where some people used to cook food, on the other hand the same space was used for wasteful activities.Uchalya got Sahitya Academy Award in Marathi in 1988 and is also winner of National Award.

    A harrowing autobiography detailing the author s trials as he is born in a caste branded as a thieving caste a tribe who sustained themselves by theft true to quite an extent but Shri Gaikwad wanted a better life.But the staggering force of a rigid society wouldn t let him do it social pressures from his own community, the desperate need for a bread winner, the author s quiet desperation to escape the depressing life and lead a better one far from the oppressions of upper castes these make us re evaluate the grand narrative of the kind, multi cultural, peaceful India that is often showcased.A wonderful read Despite it s simplistic language with little literary merit, it is a book that does not require literary embellishment to capture the reader s attention and leave him her thinking deeply long after the book is finished.

    Laxman Gaikwad narrates his community s plight and his personal experiences being a part of the branded community The autobiography translated in English from Marathi by P A Kolkarkar describe how the tribes left as an outcast on the fringes deprived of education, dignity and freedom Tribal communities lost their legitimate means of livelihood They were denied stable jobs The only alternative left to them for survival was thieving and looting.The book speaks about the social standing of different communities before the independence period and the atrocities among the poor people The only flaw is the repetition of thoughts and ideas in the translated book, which takes away from the literary quality The translator s note does argue that some of this may have been necessary to retain the original flavour of the story.

    The book starts off in humour and then moves into very serious issue that India still faces With the cry for Marathwada going loud, this book seems still very significant The welfare state that Indiaclaims to be, has had its issues The book questions not only Police and state action and their role in stopping people from certain castes and tribes from finding their ground It also makes one realise how the urban folks just don t understand the significance of reservation system that had been brought in.
