An investigation into the incident is under way, the police said, adding, according to their initial assessment, there was “serious negligence” on part of the hatchery management in ensuring adequate safety measures at the site.

At least seven workers of a private hatchery died of asphyxiation inside a drain in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh on Friday morning.

Chittoor superintendent of police (SP) G Srinivas said the incident took place in Venkateshwara Hatchery in Moram village. Four workers fell unconscious after they entered the drain in Palamaneru for cleaning purpose. Three others, who entered the drain to rescue the four workers, also fell unconscious.

Residents rushed to the spot to rescue the workers, however, all of them had died by the time their bodies were pulled out. The two workers, who raised the alarm, entered the drain for rescue work and fell unconscious. The duo are currently undergoing treatment in a hospital.

Following published article in a leading daily suggests affirmative action in Indian cricket on the lines of South African policy of compulsory 50% Black players intake.
What’s as pervasive in India as caste? An interest in cricket. What do the two have to tell about India when brought together? A lot, it turns out.
Between January and July 2017, 1,261 Indian men aged 14-30 from eight gram panchayats near Varanasi with roughly equal numbers of General, OBC, and SC/ST residents participated in cricket tournaments for money. The results of this socioeconomic experiment, carried out by MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab, show that when people from different castes collaborate towards a common goal, it leads to more cross-caste friendships and less caste-based discrimination.
Led by economist Matt Lowe, the study is first to show that the impact of such a contact between castes depends on the nature of interaction. “Collaborative contact increases willingness to interact with men from other castes, reduces own-caste favoritism, and increases efficiency. In contrast, adversarial contact has no positive impacts, and can even have negative effects,” argue the researchers.
One of the criteria for choosing the gram panchayats was that they had to have caste-segregated hamlets. When the cricket-crazy young men–48 percent of them had played in a cricket tournament in the past 12 months—hit the field, those assigned to mixed teams made more other-caste friends, chose more other-caste teammates, put ability over caste in choosing teams, and engaged in more cross-caste trade after leaving the experiment than those kept in the control group.
“Having all other-caste teammates instead of none increases the number of other-caste friends by 1.2, while having all other-caste opponents instead of none decreases the number of other-caste friends by 5.5,” notes the study.
What of own-caste favouritism? The players voted to choose one representative from each team who would be sent out to receive professional cricket coaching.
“General castes show the most in-group favoritism in voting, followed by OBCs. General castes on average rank someone from a different caste 0.78 positions lower – this outgroup bias is larger than the effect of the votee being a full two standard deviations worse in bowling, batting, and fielding ability. The own-caste favoritism of SC/STs is small and statistically insignificant,” says the study, confirming the general asymmetry in caste discrimination. However, the researchers found that collaborative contact reduced “own-caste favoritism in voting by up to 33%, while adversarial has no effect.”
The study also makes an attempt at decoding the myth of cricketing ability.
“SC/ST players are worse at cricket, conditional on age. Their maximum bowling speed is on average 3.45 km/h slower than that of General castes (0.34 s.d.), and they hit 0.31 fewer 4s/6s (0.24 s.d.), and catch 0.22 fewer balls (0.19 s.d.).” OBC players, the researchers learnt, do not differ significantly from General castes under any measure of ability. As with other arenas, the performance gap can be attributed to the difference in opportunities.
“In choosing captains, the batting order, and who bowls, teams can show favoritism towards one caste over others. Favoritism of upper castes exists for all three types of allocation. SC/STs are significantly less likely to be chosen as captains, and less favored in the batting and bowling orders.”
Notably, little changed when ability controls were added. “The evidence suggests that teams actively discriminate against lower castes. Considering the coefficient on age, SC/STs are effectively treated like a General caste four or five years their junior. OBCs also appear to be less favored than General castes, but the effect is much smaller and significant only for batting order choices.”
The situation is hardly limited to rural Uttar Pradesh. Questions about the prevalence of caste in Indian cricket have been asked before. In July, the union minister of state for social justice, Ramdas Athawale, demanded reservations for SC-ST communities in the Indian cricket team to increase its efficiency. The statement led to a furious debate about merit and cricket of which nothing came out.
In 2016, South Africa started racial quotas — a minimum of six black players — for the national cricket team in an attempt to address decades of under-representation of black Africans in the sport. This was introduced after a demand to enforce quotas had led to long-running divisions in the cricket establishment since the South African team’s re-entry to the international arena in 1991.
Looking at the broader picture, the study uses the findings to argue that “affirmative action policies that place under-performing and discriminated against minorities in contact with a dominant group may nevertheless lead to improved intergroup relations.”

A young Dalit woman, nine months pregnant, and her unborn child died allegedly after being brutally beaten up by the police in the Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh. The incident took place late on Sunday night in the Mankapur locality of the Asandra police station area in Barabanki district.

Family members of 22-year-old Ruchi, who belong to the scheduled caste Rawat community, alleged that armed police dragged her from their house and beat her badly with wooden sticks, including on her stomach, until she died on the spot. The police persons who thrashed Ruchi were there to investigate illegal alcohol production and decided that she was hiding liquor in her belly, said family members.

The police, denying the allegation, stated that the young woman died of a heart attack. Locals who were witness to the incident said that a police party raided Ruchi’s house in search of country-made liquor on Sunday night. After the raid, scared male members of the family ran away from the house but Ruchi, in the last days of her pregnancy, was unable to escape. The police thrashed her outside the house, beat her with wooden sticks and kicked her on her stomach, they said.

The incident was brought to the attention of top police and administrative officials, but no FIR has been lodged regarding the death of the Dalit pregnant woman. Talking to The Wire, Faizabad IG Rajiv Prakash said, “According to a Supreme Court ruling, an FIR cannot be lodged against any public servant before the matter is probed, so the probe has been ordered. If police persons are found guilty, then they will be booked.”

Arvind Rawat, Ruchi’s husband, said that he works in a local poultry farm and neither him nor his family members are involved in the making of country liquor. “In our village, no one is involved in this illegal business. Only on a suspicion the police raided our house. We were scared of the khaki uniforms, so we hid ourselves and ran some distance. When we heard Ruchi shouting, then we and other villagers rushed to the spot, but by then they had killed my wife. After Ruchi died, the policemen fled,” he said.

Susheel Singh, circle officer of Ram Sanehi Ghat police circle, the jurisdiction in which the incident occurred, said, “We have arrested three persons from the village on charges of making country liquor. We got news that some woman has died and locals are alleging the police party killed the woman.”

This incident comes two weeks after Savitri Devi, also a pregnant Dalit woman, was beaten for accidentally ‘touching’ a bucket belonging to an upper caste Thakur woman in UP’s Bulandshahr district. Savitri and her unborn child died on October 21, six days after the upper caste woman and her son beat the Dalit woman. The local hospital had refused to treat Savitri when they saw that she had no external injuries.

Condemn this brutal murder!
Punish the casteist culprits, for the ghastly murder of a dalit boy!

Friends, I am shocked and immensely pained at the news of the brutal murder of a dalit boy from Khanapur in Manthani mandal, Peddapalli district, Manthani Madhukar, for his “crime” of loving an “upper caste” girl or reciprocating her love. The murder, too horrible to even imagine with cutting penis, severe injuries all over the body, is said to have taken place on March 14 or a day later, but came to light two days ago. According to reports, the boy was a farmhand working with the family of the girl who loved him and he reciprocated. In fact, the girl’s caste is listed as “Backward Caste” but Manudharma and feudal and strait-jacketed hierarchical caste system assigns “upper” position to each caste to look down the castes
“lower” to it. And of course dalit is not only “lowest”, but “untouchable”. And lord Krishna, himself, in Bhagavadgita pronounced that “swadharme nidhanam shreyah paradharmo bhayaavahah” (everybody has to perform the work destined to him, doing the other person’s job is dangerous) prohibiting caste mingling.


There are Manuvadis and followers of Gita everywhere and the BC family members forced the girl to call the boy to the house and started beating him before her. The girl tried to commit suicide and consumed pesticide and she was moved to a hospital. She was afraid that her family killed the boy, and informed the same to his family. When his family searched around the village, they found the dead body in bushes on the outskirts.


Pic01: His life taken for his love, cruel India.

The dead body had telltale signs of pouring acid, cutting penis, breaking ribs and forcing pesticide into mouth. It is learnt that the girl’s family is related to the local TRS MLA. That is, he is part of the team that ushers in Bangaru Telangana. Even when all the cruelty came out white, the local police, and particularly the CI, said it is a case of suicide! That is the way “people-friendly Telangana police” are taught to behave. Shame….



Citizen Against  Ghastly Caste-ridden India

His Mother Speaks:


A 52-year old Dalit man was allegedly beaten to death by the police for throwing coloured powder on an upper caste on Holi in Jharkhand’ Koderma district , the victim’s widow said.

The family of victim Pradeep Choudhary said that the deceased, along with other villagers, had sprinkled abir (coloured powder) on a local chowkidar Rajendra Yadav as a gesture of goodwill on Holi.

However, Yadav took exception to the action and called upon police to teach the group a lesson. “The police started beating up Pradeep till he fell unconscious. They then took him to the police station,” Pradeep’s widow Jashwa Devi said.

Jashwa claimed that she along with her brother rushed to the Satbarwa police station but the officials did not allow them to see Pradeep and instead abused them over their caste.

Jashwa said police eventually dropped Pradeep home the next morning.

“His body bore many bruises. We took him to Koderma Sadar hospital from where he was referred to Ranchi but he succumbed to his injuries ,” Jashwa alleged.

Waiting for justice, Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange, the lone survivor of Khairlanji Massacre, breathed his last in the evening of 20th January, 2017. He was declared dead in Nagpur’s Shrikrishna’s hospital due to major heart attack. Earlier when he came back from his work to his residence at MHADA colony, Bhandara he did not feel well. Immediately, he was taken to Dr Chavan , MD, who diagnosed him with major heart attack and referred him to Nagpur’s Shrikrishna Hospital. After about an hour in ICCU of the hospital, he succumbed to the heart attack and passed away. It is reported by one of his relatives and activists closer to him, that before 4 months he suffered the paralytic attack for which he was treated from a local doctor and got recovered.

Pic01: Bhayyalal Bhotmange father of Priyaka, Sudhir died last week..

Born on 13th March, 1956 to mother, Mrs Sasubai and father Sudama,  Bhaiyyalal was hardly educated upto 4th Standard. His major occupation was farming. When he got married to Surekha, he shifted to Khairlanji to cultivate the ancestral small piece of land which was earlier barren. He and his wife with their hard-work, nourished the land and harvested the good deal of paddy. Though, not educated, he understood the importance of education due to Babasaheb’’s message of educating the children well even at the expense of filing up the belly. His efforts were well responded by his children as daughter Priyanka wanted to become a police officer and son, an engineer. But his dreams remained unfulfilled as caste hatred destroyed their lives on 29th September, 2016.

The massacre completely devastated his life, but the Ambedkarite activists rallied behind. He first stayed in the house of Mr Dilip Ukey in Varathi , the railway station town place of Bhandara. He accommodated himself very well with his family and was also very caring to his children. However, he left Mr Ukey’s house and started staying alone in MHADA house given by government. He used to appear before all the police and CBI enquiries without fear. Whenever there were deputations to the dignitaries like the then Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, he was in complete control of himself. He was also composed in front of media. Many of the activists visited and interviewed him who were well responded by him without any hesitation. Wherever he went he appeared to be a walking symbol of injustice and discrimination, the reality with which the Dalits are still identified with. This reality is pushing them for revolt which Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange symbolized!

Bhaiyyalal’s struggle with justice can be reckoned with great bravery and courage. From trial court in Bhandara to High Court in Nagpur, he would attend all the hearing even though not specifically called by court. He would also attend the public programs organized by Ambedkarites. He along with activists from Nagpur would organize the annual function to commemorate the deaths of his wife and children at Deulagaon, the place of their graveyard. Last time he was seen in the program for awareness on Atrocity Act organized by Dalit activists in the month of November, 2016 in the backdrop of the demand for the repeal of the act by Maratha Kranti Morcha. His mere presence said it all about caste atrocities. He was also present in Mumbai to pay homage to Babasaheb on 6th December,2016 at Chaitya Bhoomi. But ironically, he passed away without seeing the dawn of justice which was delayed and denied!  He rests in peace near graves of his wife and children.
