Woman's Entry To Temples - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Entry of woman is barred to some shrines.
Activists demand to scrape the practice.
The customary exclusion is defended.

Entry of dalits was barred to all shrines.
Entry of dalits was made by law later.
The customary exclusion was scraped.

Now temples have no right to bar dalits.
Do they have holds to bar woman's entry?
Customs must obey the law of the land.

(Dalits = the once untouchable Indians)
