 Here is a comment from a Punjab Youth, named Johny who comes from an underprivileged caste background. Hindu Celebrated ‘Valmiki’ name given to a section of Dalit community to which Jonhy belongs by social pundits in India serving nothing better than a methaphor. Naming this way is an effective strategy to contain the rising sentiments of edcuated minds against caste slavery; just like Mr Gandhi coined Harijan for Dalits (claiming they are only heirs of Hari; Dr Ambedkar then asked who are others ?). Imagine; this section of Dalit community  carry nightsoil and clean streets on daily basis. So much of erosion of human dignity in their daily lives; is a simple truth. Other turth is Indian Temples are overflooding with money ; social actions are missing. Metaphoric naming serves silent purpose for those who have interest in Caste system. He writes….

“hi!

Dear Johny,
The community needs youth like you; you have zeal and determination to create multiple opportunities to people who are stuck-up in the rigidity of caste system. You are an asset to the people with whom you stay.

However Atrocitynews would find such occasions to invite you in participating compassionate action in times ahead.
Till then keep moving with an inspiring awe.
