Finally wrote about the DU math cut off PhD thing because the results have come. 3 news outlets have written about how this was irresponsible reporting and casteist. Interesting no one who shared the first article has reshared any of these articles that call out casteism. Why are savarnas not allies? Because I see repeated posts about racism and standing for black women while they do zero things to acknowledge their savarna privilege or call out their friends and family. Anyway, you can read the article on my medium blog.

Attended a lecture yesterday. Shoutout to @book_architect for letting me know about this lecture.
Insightful because of the legal provisions and studies. Although, I disagree with multiple points that the speaker put forth, it was still an enlightening lecture.

Part 5 of short film Mugamoodi
Woman: My elder brother will no longer come back to that job and hands back the box.
Woman walks back to see that the co-ordinator did not drink the tea that was offered. #endmanualscavenging #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #uppercasteviolence #reservation #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitlivesmatter #sc #scheduledcaste #india #reservation

Babasaheb Ambedkar while studying in school was not allowed to drink water. Today, upper caste people repeatedly say: "come one, don't tell me Dalits face the same atrocities they faced decades ago". They also say "why should I face problems in whatever problems in college seats because ancestors for something looong back" And, many other things I read everyday online. While things like this happen- every day. Where is the SC/ST atrocities prevention act? #india #poc #effyourcastesystem #effyourjati #caste #casteinindia #castebasedreservation #scst #dalit #dalitvoices #dalithistory #dalitlivesmatter #dalithistorymonth #dalitatrocities

Shared via Kavitha Krishnan's Facebook post. Goonda act used for students but not for actual Goondas. The irony. Goonda in many languages mean thugs. When actual goondas run the country and are in majority of the political parties, obviously they will arrest students and not actual goondas. Can you imagine they were arrested for distributing pamphlets. Till date how many gau rakshaks were arrested for goonda act? Or let's see the number of people under religious march carry baseball bats, pistols, knives, swords are arrested under goonda acts? Zero. But sure students who are unarmed are arrested. And guess what India says when it goes to UN? There are active student debates in the country about important social issues. Yeah, there are active students debates only you try to stifle them. And Divya Bharathi who made the monument art film "kakoos" was also arrested. Where is ABVP to join this protest now? Where is the social help organization RSS? You know how they say for the nation? Why manual scavengers dieting in shit pits are not Indian enough for you to come for protest? #indiaproblems #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #india #divyabharti #aisa #kakoos #stoparrestingstudents #valarmathi #dalit #dalits #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitlivesmatter #downwithcasteism #downwithauthoritarianism #effyourpatriarchy #effyourcastesystem #effyourjati #uppercasteviolence #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #sc #scheduledcaste #reservation #stoparrestingactivists #goondaact

Kakkoos documentary. Their minimum wage is 226 rupees which is also not paid. Where is swaach Bharat? This is not India? The India you know is only Starbucks and JW Marriott? The India you know is having 10 cousins in America and travelling to Bali for vacation? Hindu tradition is the best. It has a reason for everything. Tell me what is the reason? What good karma will you accumulate from brutally abusing fellow human beings and then abusing the same for getting reservation?

In today's post about Dalit History. Wikipedia lists them under the Chamar sub-caste. They form 14.9% of the total Dalit population in Punjab. #casteinindia #caste #india #priviledge #dalit #dalitvoices #dalithistorymonth #dalithistory #addharma #mangooram #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #infoseries

Dappu Prakash died today. A shining voice who sang about the Dalit identity in Telugu. He had been suffering from an illness for a while and passed away. Acknowledging his immense contribution and struggle to the Dalit movement. The article is shared from Karthick Navayan's blog. #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitvoices #dappuprakash #india #casteinindia #telugudalitvoices #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #dalitmovementindia

It's incomplete. If you would like to read it, search it on google or DM me, I'll send you a link. When people say caste discrimination does not exist. And SC/ST students are taking away seats, they fail to talk about how these students are treated. This sort of discrimination is the story of almost every SC/ST student out there which upper caste Hindus never want to acknowledge. #scst #indiancastesystem #uppercasteviolence #discrimination #indianeducationsystem #letstalkaboutcaste #dalitvoices #dalitlivesmatter #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem

Sharing this via an account and not a news source because many leading newspapers that reported on this issue have failed to report her caste. Although it is reported that the her nephew and niece have planned this along with the neighbour and it's a probable property snatching plot because the she was a widow. Many women in India suffer from the stigma of losing a husband. And property disputes are extremely common. What is important here is how because she was a Dalit it was so easy to get away with torturing her in a violent way. Let's also remember the panchayat which tried to hush up the matter because 'sanskar'. Gandhi famously advocated for village self governance. What people forget is when self governance occurs in small pockets especially in a fragmented society like ours, the oppressed have no voice and are subjected to the worst marginalisation and oppression by the people who hold power. #caste #indiacaste #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #uppercastehegemony #rajasthan #ajmer #kanyadevi #womenbrandedaswitches #poc #woc #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #torture #humanrightsabuses #violentcrimes #india #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitfeminist #dalitbahujan #sc #scheduledcaste #reservation

KK Aggarwal is the head of IMA. Please refer to the previous post about his "full of talent". He was also topper at Nagpur university 😂😂 Recently there was a lot of noise about DU cut off being zero. While the DU students still have to pass an interview, how come none of the outraged savarnas are making noise about this guy? This guy is the head of a council and he speaks this way. This is merit? This is how reservation is stopping deserving savarna student right? Gosh, who will we complain to now?
This is the hypocrisy of the savarna. They say Dalit Bahujan students bring down the quality of education because they get in via their caste with low marks while their savarna counterparts run entire institutions with their surname. #shitsavarnassay #dalit #dalitvoices #sc #scheduledcaste #caste #casteindia #india #reservation #kkaggarwal #ima #indianmedicalcouncil #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #uppercastehegemony #brahiminismbelikethis #dalitbahujan

This a clear example of how the savarnas benefit from violence. The victims were who were Brahmins get 5 lakh compensation and a manual scavenger who dies on the job gets 1 lakh compensation (which almost never reaches them). The savarnas scream about reservation and yet this is how the keep the positions within their own community. Any Dalit who gets in this closed system is an outlier and will be treated with disrespect and not given positions irrespective of their merit. Yet, these savarnas get it because they have the same caste person in the top positions. So who has reservation here? Who needs to prove their merit? #sc #obc #reservation #upgovernment #yogiadityanath #thakurs #caste #casteism #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #india #indiaproblems #raebareli #uppercastehegemony #uppercasteviolence #uppercastepriviledge #brahminism

This is an old story but I am sharing it to illustrate how even when there is a law against discriminating against Dalits, dalits still get discriminated, beaten, killed, mutilated, shamed. And every time one of these stories are highlighted, the upper castes will always says that the person in question, the Dalit was stealing or doing something unlawful. And besides all this, Dalits still have to hear about how caste is a British invention and doesn't exist in modern India #sc #scheduledcaste #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #uppercastehegemony #uppercasteviolence #uppercastepriviledge #caste #casteism #castebaseddiscrimination #reservation #india #indiaproblems

The negative cut off this person is harking on about is for Physically disabled candidates. If you see the cut off marks for general candidate it is a massive difference 105 to 19. Yet they seem to focus only on the negative marks that is assigned to sc-st-ncobc candidates. The savarnas are not just casteist but ableist too. They don't understand the nature of oppression or disadvantages. Not to mention many of these students want to go abroad to do their education, consequently come back to India and act all higher than people who actually have had an education is India and hire foreign educated candidates #marginalized #educationindia #indiaproblems #india #reservation #casteism #caste #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #uppercastepriviledge #effyourcastesystem #effyourjati #dalits #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #sc #scheduledcaste #st #adivasi

Image shows an answer on quora where a woman is talking about reservation. The bottom image is about untouchability that exists and is prevalent.
I combined both these images to show the stark reality. Abuses on Dalits are prevalent on social media. You can find quora filled with them. Lets deconstruct what this is woman is saying
1. Every college/university that is private in India does not have reservation. Example: BITS Pilani.
2. Reserved category students getting fee concessions. Many universities have rules regarding this: for example if the reserved category student was in the workforce, they don't get fee concessions or application form concessions. Many educational institutions also have a income level cut off where students from marginalized communities can only avail the fee concession of their parents make an income below a certain amount and they have to provide an income certificate.
I will illustrate with a few more posts how the typical savarna student in India acts like reservation is the only reason they chose to go abroad and study. But the truth is far from it. This is modern day casteism. Blaming people from maginalized communities for taking away something these people consider their 'birth right' #casteism #savarnas #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitfeminist #sc #scheduledcaste #dalitbahujan #st #adivasi #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #reservation #india #indiaproblems #educationindia #marginalized #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #poc #woc

Part 1 of how Hindu groups in U.K. Hit back at British governments plans to ban caste based discrimination. Talks miles about the privilege savarnas still hold. Grouping all Indians as ethnic minorities is a shame for the actual people like Dalits who are continued to be oppressed by brahminical system. If you are in the U.K. Please raise your voice against this. Say no to caste based discrimination #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #sc #scheduledcaste #uk #britian #haf #hinduamericanfoundation #savarnas #saynotocastebasediscrimination #brexit

Title: For installing Ambedkar statue Dalits face social boycott
Date: June 24 2017
The current presidential candidates are both Dalits. However even that has not changed the ground level atrocities Dalits face as evidenced in this article. Any form of expression and assertion of Dalit community is termed as violence. While this government is busy sanctioning loans that amount to crores to rupees for other statues while cutting health and education budget funds. This is a prime example of the brahmanical system violence #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #dalitlivesmatter #savarnas #avarna #sc #scheduledcaste #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #indian #indiaproblems

I wanted to share this shitty blog I came across where this guy freely makes up crap while very cleverly adding some accurate things (you know psychologically if you read something with a few facts, you believe the rest of the article maybe true too) depending on your stand. One of the facts that is true is about Muslim invaders calling people 'Hindus' because that was a term that did not exist before. Irony is Ambedkar himself had spoken and told this which this guy clearly fails to mention.
But my true purpose of posting this is to show that how modern Hindus who practise casteism even until today say that 'casteism and shudra' are British invention. Dalits don't belong to the shudra community. They were excluded from the Chaturvarna and hence avarna and untouchables. But this guy according to him does not have to give any sources because his blog is art. And do look out for when he says his son studying in Cornell university, there was not one black person because it was all about 'grey matter' ( a clear evidence of anti-blackness in the brown savarna community) and of sexism where woman can never be better than man, mayawati comparison which shows their deep hatred for dalit women. Today, the Hindus are rejecting texts which talk about casteism as British invention. If it is a British invention, why are they still marrying within the caste? #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #dalitlivesmatter #black #blacklivesmatter #antiblack #sc #scheduledcaste #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #poc #woc #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #racism

Title: Caste in Law Schools, the Elephant in the Room.
Representation for Dalits in the judiciary has always been low. What does it mean that brahminical control of this system exists and flourishes? It means that even with 'law' the savarnas largely promote positions of power within themselves to maintain their circle of purity, prestige and casteism. This is only a part of the article. You can read the full article on the website. #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #sc #scheduledcaste #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #judicialsystem #judiciaryindia #justicekarnan

Another instance of how even when Dalits are insulted, the savarnas can still step up and get promotions. No law protect Dalits in this land. The laws are on paper but not implemented. Many VC's appointed in Indian elite universities carry anti-dalit casteist sentiments. And they discriminated against students. When fellow students bully them to the point of death, no action is taken by these people in power. Because they look out for each other. What is Dalits taking away all positions? Where is the rhetoric of Dalits getting everything free? #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #indiaproblems #highereducationindia #sc #scheduledcaste #reservation #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #dalitlivesmatter #icssr #jnu

Swipe to read. Article source economic times. The articles name is "why Baniyas are so successful" which is a business caste in India. Swipe to read.
Savarnas constantly use their caste identity to distinguish themselves and show that they carry the supposedly illustrious example of their caste heritage like baniyas who belong to the vaishya caste group who according to the caste hierarchy are business people. They identify as we are baniyas, benefit from it as many of these people promote within their own caste. But if the media mentions a Dalit student or professor who achieved something and mentions the word Dalit in the headline people lose their shit. Being a baniya is not something they had to actively fight against, so using the caste name here wasn't even necessary. But Dalits have systemic oppression and discrimination, so when their caste is mentioned, it is not the same as this article where a baniya caste was used. #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #sc #scheduledcaste #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #caste #casteindia #castebaseddiscrimination #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem

This is an old article but I am reposting this to illustrate an important point about social exclusion in public spaces for Dalits. Crowdsourcing is popular in India and many individuals and companies use crowdfunding but the minute a Dalit raises funds to use for uplifting their community, they are charged with a police case. Many Dalit activists are arrested for vague reasons just for existing or speaking up. Yet we constantly hear savarnas say what do uplifted Dalits do to uplift the Dalits who are in horrible situations. When they are doing that are you sure you are letting them? #india #uppercasteviolence #uppercastehegemony #reservation #sc #scheduledcaste #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitlivesmatter #dalitfeminist #effyourjati #effyourcastesystem #dalitactivists #ahmedabad #gujarat ##jigneshmevani

When savarnas say: We didn't invent caste system, we don't discriminate, just because our ancestors did doesn't mean we do it, caste system didn't exist and is the invention of British people trying to break idea 😒 #effyourcastesystem #effyourjati #sc #scheduledcaste #dalit #dalitvoices #dalitbahujan #dalitfeminist #dalitlivesmatter #adivasi #st #reservation #uppercastehegemony #uppercasteviolence #india
