The upper castes are screaming that reservations are against merit. Merit my foot. Reservations means equitable distribution of resources and oppurtunities for all the different castes. Thats why our teacher V.T. Rajashekar has said that we should streghthen our caste identity. Every caste is a nation and it should demand its share. If your caste is 1 percent of the population you get 1 percent share in educational institutions and jobs. This is the magic of Babasaheb. But upper caste people who are controlling all the resources and jobs are opposing reservations. Can anyone be more inhuman than these upper caste people. they shout about merit and marks. Just because a person get 80 percent or 90 percent why should they get a seat for a medical college. If a Dalit gets 50 percent considering all the oppression that has happened to the dalits ssince the last 5000 years this is as good as 95 %. But upper caste fellows never understand this. They understand only what they want to understand.
We at Dalit Nation are proposing to all the dalits to have their caste name before their name. Like if your name is Siddharth and your caste name is Dhobiwale, then call yourself Dhobiwale Sidhharth. We need to strenghten our caste identities. Thats the way to go if we need to be peaceful and prosperous.
We are also trying to bring the plight of Dalits in front of the US congress and the UN. It is time the world knows about the oppressed black dalits of India. This is the worst racism and we wont tolerate this anymore. Let us go all over the world and tell this. We need to work closely with the western and middle organizations now. Our well wisher the great Gail Omvedt discussed with us in a recent seminar in Nagpur on the synergetic relationship that can be developed by uniting the Church and the Dalits. It will also gives us enormous funds as well coverage. The world is still a humane place only because of people like our sister Gail Omvedt.
We dont beleive reservations for only Dalits. We beleive in reservations for everyone.Equal representations for all castes.
