Without Prejudice – a bold story well told by Devasis

Without Prejudice – A novel on the life sketch of a fictional Mumbai Bar Dancer, Without Prejudice, the book, delves deep into the roots of the evolution of these dancers, and attempts to answer how the sudden decision of closure of the Dance Bars in Mumbai  ran the danger and risk of depriving this section of the populace of a dignified way of living, albeit not being seen so by some sections of the society. The story narrates the damage caused by certain archaic laws to this section of the Indians and how the government, administration and general public are completely unaware of the injustice meted to the women from these communities, as highlighted in the book. This is a bold story well told.
