As bats, owls screeched in banyan trees,
Right inside the palace, a young man woke up…
To his right, his wife and children asleep.

Nirmal Guru 18 January 2008
I strongly condemn about this poem, i dont know why the people are writing about others caste or religion, when they are having a lesser vision. The initial line, ' They call themselves as saaliyar' itself is a problem, i think. In my point of view, nobody knows who created castes and nobody calls themselves as this caste or that caste. And the way he narrates the caste, it seems they are uneducated. But he should mind, nearly 75% of this caste are educated(including myself) , some are working in abroad.My Request is please stop writing poems which hurts castes or religion or individuals.
