All Dalit students go through some or the other form of caste oppression in colleges and universities across India. This is an often denied undeniable fact.

The most common ways by which it is implemented are:
1) The fresher SC/ST students are ragged....badly. They are insulted on caste lines, made to say derogatory words about themselves, locked up in their hostels and dorms, and to top that all, worse forms of physical abuse.

and those who 'deny' it, please get a life. you may be 'smart' but that doesn't make others fool.
how come you have never been there or talked to such fellows, and still you have the cheek to deny it, just because you are from 'general category', the only category that has reserved the rights for itself to be meritorious.

2) Now the responsibility of persecuting SC/ST students is shared by the faculty as well. After all, why should the 'non-meritorious' make it to 'their' college by 'victimizing' the meritorious class. So the faculty takes it upon their shoulders to prove SC/STs as non meritorious, by failing them or undermarking them in exams, in laboratories and by humiliating in classrooms.

3) Students councils, students bodies...some places where SC/ST students never get selected to.
If at all they do, because it was mandatory according to the institute regulations, they are victimised to the extent that they'd quit it. you can read instances regarding the same in the link above.

4) SC/STs must not try and interact with the meritorious category. SC/STs are warned in advance, not to use 'their' playgrounds, not to play 'their' sports, not to do ANYTHING they are told not to.

million other ways are devised and implemented everyday by the 'meritorious' general category...if you've been into any university in India, you know what i mean.

and to cut the rest of the saga short.

All SC/ST students who are harrassed in their educational institutes, please do report the same to us at

We have provisions in law against such casteist practices, lets not let them go free because we do not report their crimes, for the fear of further oppression by them, their mates and faculty.

Do report it to us and join us for action against the culprits. Do not fear of any further oppression that they might unleash upon you. Report it to us.
Let us make them pay for their crimes.

The Beginning - The Oppressed decide they've had enough.

Right. A rubber band has its limit. You keep stretching it, it'll snap off, and hit back somewhere near your fingers, sometimes causing a pricking pain.

Replace the rubber band with all Dalit students in India, and the guy stretching these rubber bands, AIIMS director P Venugopal, his cronies in the faculty, the fearless 'given-a-go-ahead' supercool meritorious general category students in AIIMS campus, and their replicants across all educational institutes in India, be it the IITs, The 'National Institutes Of Technology', The State Universities, Ooh the IIMs.
The rubber just finished the longest endurance test in history.
Pity, It just snapped off.

People, yes, all you legends mentioned above, We indeed have decided that we have had enough.

We have indeed decided that we'll not let you call us 'Sheddu', 'Chooda', 'Chamar' and the other names you have been calling us with.

Professors, We have indeed decided that we'll not let you fail us in the exams where we are supposed to score a decent total.

We have indeed decided that we'll not let you humiliate us in interviews, vivas, practicals, field trips by asking our caste everywhere.

We have indeed decided that we'll not let the bullshit go on you general category students do in the name of ragging.

We have indeed decided, we've had enough, and the violaters shall be punished severly.


Come, try it.
