Caste, Class, Creed And Dalit Literature - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey
This is possible in India,
In Indian context only,
Not at all applicable to English literature
Though the stories of oppression and suppression
Are spread worldwide.
Dalit as a word means trodden,
Downtrodden and proletarian,
Oppressed and suppressed,
But here in connection with caste and class in India,
Ethnically and racially vast and varied.
Dalit is but Harijan in the eyes of Mahatma Gandhi,
Hari's jans, people, God's people,
They are not untouchables, but the Harijans,
A scheduled caste man too can be a saint
As the origin of the river and the caste of the saint
Can never be questioned.
