The story of the novel revolves around the argument that is in favour of eradicating the caste system from India. The novel describes a day in the life of the central character Bakha. He is the titular character "Untouchable." He is a 'sweeper' by profession. Since he cleans latrines, he is deemed scheduled caste or untouchable. "Untouchable" was the author's first major work. It is written in a very simply style. Although the novel is very simple, it is a very powerful work of literature that exposed the dehumanizing contradictions and systematic oppressions inherent in India's stratified society.
