These twelve stories introduce readers to the life-world of Telugu Muslims, their dreams, sorrows and predicaments. Negotiations around the burqa and dowry are interwoven with communal sharing of marriage expenses and work; unfulfilled love, the desperation and helplessness of penury are eased by promises of migration to the Gulf. Presenting moving portraits of individuals battling prejudice and isolation, within and outside the community, with dignity and courage, they foreground the friendships between poor rural and mofussil Telugu Muslims and Dalits and invite us to share their emotional journeys. Skybaaba´s stories raise vital questions about Muslim and Telugu identity in India, women in Islam, and caste among Andhra Muslims.
