Another Victim after Mudasir: EFLU Administration's Blood-thirst Exposed

 

Dalit Camera: Through Un-Touchable Eyes

Dalit Camera interviewed Munavath Sriramulu, an Adivasi student in the German department of, EFLU, on the persecution he had been subjected to by the university administration for nearly two years. You'll find an earlier interview of Sriramulu, conducted right after the tragic death of Mudasir Kamran, in the second part of this article. The interview was transcribed by Ajith Francis.  

 

 

Dalit Camera: What is happening? How do you feel?

Sriramulu: I am M. Sriramulu. In the beginning, I was in C.C Shroff Hospital. They made me undergo a lot of tests (scanning, etc.). They tried to make up a report that I was very much fine and fit, mentally and physically. But I felt that something was wrong. On 7th or 8th, I'm not very sure of the exact date, at noon, Nirupama Rastogi along with the University Doctor (attending at the campus Health Centre) came to see me. This was because DABMSA, TSA and all other student organizations in the University were raising accusations that the University administration was very negligent towards my state of health. So just to silence them and show them that this wasn't the case, Nirupama Rastogi came with the campus Health Centre Doctor. They visited me.

Till what point of time they will discriminate, humiliate, oppress and deny our rights and justice? This question we must ask to ourselves. What is the point of time which will bring us together (uniting) to fight in organized manner against such inhuman treatment to us?? There are many such questions we must look into. So it is an appeal to support the cause of justice, the demand against this loss of valuable Dalit life. Spread the words for support..... Build the Dalit Movement again across the country and regions against this injustice done to the Dalit student...

First ever poetry collection on lives of Dalit women launched in Delhi

 

Rajeev R Singh

A unique collection of Hindi poetry was launched in Delhi. It's the 1st ever collection of poetry about the lives and struggles of Dalit & Adivasi women - by 65 young poets of the democratic tradition. (Editors: Anita Bharti & Bajrang Bihari Tiwari).

There was a different kind of excitement and expectation in the air. As history was being created at the meeting hall of the Gandhi Peace Foundation, New Delhi, the crowd looked expectantly towards the podium to catch a glimpse of 'Yathastithi se Takraate Hue Dalit Stree Jeewan se Judi Kavitaayein', a unique collection of Hindi poetry by 65 poets.

Dalits are ex-untouchables, the lowest castes in the highly hierarchical Hindu caste system. Though un-touchability is outlawed under the Indian Constitution, social norms and practices have changed little over the decades in India.

Dalits have struggled for a dignified existence since centuries. However under the championing leadership of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, Dalits got a new voice and direction. He was also the chairperson of the Indian Constitution's drafting committee.
