The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter: This is a memoir written by Shilpa Raj, an author from Karnataka. However, you cannot understand the importance of this book by just saying that this a memoir published at an odd day! This is the ‘first ever memoir written by any woman from the Dalit community in India’ and that’s why this book suddenly becomes one of the hot new releases of this month! The book documents the journey of author Shilpa Raj from the early days of childhood to the present day. Moreover, this does not only summarise the life of Shilpa alone but the book becomes a mouthpiece for all those people who belong to the downtrodden or the lower sections of Indian society. By presenting the struggles of her family up to four generations, Shilpa Raj has spoken for all those who cannot afford to raise their voices because they don’t even have access to the basic education!

Besides these hard-hitting truths, there are also many emotional instances in the book which will bring out the pathos. Shilpa has written in details about her relationship with Kavya, her younger sister. How they played together; how she used to chide Shilpa; how she faked events and also a tragedy that changed their lives forever… So, The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter has got everything to be called a perfect memoir and with the credentials that the author has already with her, we are sure this book will be making new records of success.

Author Shilpa Raj has been featured in many media stories in the recent days as well as in a Netflix Original series titled Daughters of Destiny which will start airing on Netflix by the end of this month!
