This is an astounding way of justifying the caste system that forces Dalits into manual scavenging among many other occupations which others would not accept. It is not a question of a machine but of our mind that refuses to see injustice that forces Dalits to do such work. You may clean your own toilets but would you do it for others as a livelihood?
Dear Mr. Sainath,
I think you have bit misunderstood the caste-biased India. To safeguard the tortures on the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes sufficient laws are there but in spite of that the tortures go on and on even after the six decades of our national independence. The upper caste people cannot forget their statuary heritage they have received from the days of Manu. I think youm will agree with me.------Manohar Mouli Biswas.
A new Bill puts in peril reservation for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. This is quite shocking to know that present government has done this. We should express our objection in the strongest possible way. The very essence of the Indian democracy is to provide opportunity to marginalised and deprived to participate in the decision and development of country . The provision of reservations is not the privilege to ST & SCs, this is their right ensured by generation involved in the independence struggle.
