Dalit Camera : Through Un-Touchable Eyes

Murugesan speaks on caste and labour in Munnar plantations

From the very beginning that I began working here, myself and many like me were identified only as Chakkiliyars and were made to undertake this particular work (manual scavenging). Many had fallen sick and many died. Some are still working. The supervisor here considers only Chakkiliayars for this work. The management is also of the same thought.

Urgent call to participate in UK government’s public consultation on caste

Kumar of Pembilai Orumai speaks about the plight of Munnar Plantation Workers

It is all because trade union works with management and betrays us, puts us into slavery. If you are in the union you get some job. If we are not a member of the union we get over burdened with work. As a result of all this struggle the pennurumai/Pembilai Orumai (women's right) was born and which is now fighting for us.

Karuppu Swamy and Kumar explain the loan system of Trade Unions in Munnar Tea Plantations

Prof. Gopal Guru: Introducing How to Read ‘Annihilation of Caste’ as a Text

“Annihilation of Caste” is perfectly a modern, ethical text, and that is my claim. Therefore, Ambedkar is critical of Hinduism, it’s basically a criticism which is actually asking several questions to Hinduism, for not having taken modernity seriously. And therefore Ambedkar is asking questions to Hindu leaders, all the questions of untouchables, lower castes, tribals, everybody.

Urgent call to participate in UK government’s public consultation on caste

The UK Government has announced an open public consultation on Caste in Great Britain and Equality Law to ensure there is adequate legal protection against caste-based unlawful discrimination. The Government needs to hear from the residents of Great Britain – of South Asian origins and others – as to how individuals and groups should be protected against discrimination on caste grounds.

Call for Azadi Kooch by RDAM on the occasion of one year since Una incident

What constitutes ‘unsatisfactory’? — Presidency University and Continuing Villainization of the marginalised.

“They do not have merit”: shrill voices chant, as if merit is something other than the cumulative effect of cultural capital (a function of class and caste position), nurturing and literate home environment (that has historically been held solely by the upper castes in this country), coaching classes and access to premier institutions such as Presidency (one that was barred to the marginalised till the introduction of reservations).
