While releasing the book, Joy Mathew said that P. Shyamala has penned a historic book that gives energy to the expedition into the future. The author has clearly explained, on the basis of documents and research, how the caste system was imposed on our society which had an ancient tribal heritage, he said.
Shyamala has also traced some clues about Mahabali who is considered to be a mythical character. She narrates how Mavel Pari, a tribal king known for his bravery and righteousness, was killed by a group of jealous rulers and he later inspired the concept of Mahabali, Joy Mathew added.
