Omprakash Valmiki describes his life as an untouchable, or Dalit, in the newly independent India of the 1950s. "Joothan" refers to scraps of food left on a plate, destined for the garbage or animals. India's untouchables have been forced to accept and eat joothan for centuries, and the word encapsulates the pain, humiliation, and poverty of a community forced to live at the bottom of India's social pyramid. Although untouchability was abolished in 1949, Dalits continued to face discrimination, economic deprivation, violence, and ridicule. Valmiki shares his heroic struggle to survive a preordained life of perpetual physical and mental persecution and his transformation into a speaking subject under the influence of the great Dalit political leader, B. R. Ambedkar. A document of the long-silenced and long-denied sufferings of the Dalits, Joothan is a major contribution to the archives of Dalit history and a manifesto for the revolutionary transformation of society and human consciousness.

In late 1980s, I was controlling a large staff, which had their own personal problems, but slowly the staff members started approaching me for guidance, though this was not part of my official duty, as such , in the beginning I was reluctant to render any advise, but I found that if the problems are not sorted out in a sympathetic manner, then this leads to loss of output and at times, even led to accidents. As such , I started given tips and encouraged them to solve their problems in their own ways. This helped many and issues were solved amicably. To render better service, I started referring many books on human affairs and psychology. The study increased my knowledge base and I gained good experience. All the time, I was preparing notes and slowly the notes became bigger and bigger. The formation of a book has started and further research was done to improve upon it. Based on my experience and interaction with the people, the notes were grouped under four aspects: Religious, Spiritual, Scientific and Materialistic and how one achieves progress in these aspects. Excellence in life is a reference book, where subject matter has been arranged in a logical manner as civilizations developed in a different parts of the world. I hope that the readers will be benefited out of this book and they will develop confidence in tackling the problems, as they arise in life. Soon world would become a happier place to live in and harmony will prevail amongst all. Book is only a beginning and not the end.
