Days Will Come Back is probably the first Punjabi Dalit poetry collection which has been translated into English. Poems in it are simmering with the smell of revolution that the soil of Punjab has begotten among many of its children. In this, a voice of a Dalit Punjabi is very distinctive since we do not see Punjab in it the way it has been shown to us by upper castes from this region. These poems bleed our hearts but only to relieve us from our prejudices.
