Poojamma is a social reformer of sorts who lives in a village among Dalits in Karnataka, India. She brings unity among different castes. She becomes very popular among poor people. Her popularity sends jitters in the raw nerves of politicians who decide to fight Poojamma. Intermittent battle between her and political forces follow.

Finally, when courts are ready to hand out a death sentence to the culprits, Kala stands on the way against death sentence. The author's spicy writing style leaves only a thin line between fiction and true story. Indeed the novel is based on many true incidents with fictional flavor. The personality of Poojamma is a heady mix of fictional and real-life characters. A roller coaster of fictional intricacies awaits readers.
