The booklet consists of six stories, carrying moral lessons for Dalit and non-Dalit communities. It suggests how the oppressed and suppressed people can succeed in changing the attitude of the big and powerful, in their favour, utilizing reason and logic; how curses from the broken hearts (oppressed and suppressed people) come true; how one should embark on sincere rather sinful deeds; learn to forget and forgive to start life afresh; how honesty pays you in the long run; how one should work assiduously for the uplift and contentment of one’s own. Popularizing Buddhism is the greatest service to humanity. A new society, which rejects Brahmanism but accepts Buddhism, should be established.
