Dear Learned Friends,
On 14.01.2010, a Dalit youth was forced to eat human excreta for walking with his slippers on in one of the southern districts ofTamil Nadu. Caste hindus had attacked and asked im to eat the night-soil. Can we imagine a more inhuman treatment than this shocking incident? We are boasting of tall claims in the 21st Century such lauching Sattellites,Rockets,Internet,twitter,Blogging and so on but the change has never come in the mindset of the people. What is the fun of having these scientific inventions when Dalits are treated in this lower than animal fashion. This has been happening year after year,decade after decade and century after century when will this cancerous element of upper caste chavinism end? Intellectuals are taking about abolition of reservation, obolition of castism, inter-caste marriages,inclusive growth and change of mindset, can they kindly pay some attention to these kind of shochers? It is irony that these kind of cruel things happen in Tamil Nadu which is known as birth place social justice and politically,economically and industrially progressive State.
