Caste Virus killing Bright Students in India: ‘Merit’ a Farce

02May11
Last year, on March 3rd, 2010, another Dalit, Balmukund Bharti, final year MBBS student from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi committed suicide. He was from Kundeshwar village from Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh. He was a bright student from a very humble background.
 
Knowing the history of caste-discrimination in AIIMS our group decided to investigate the matter and went to Balmukund’s home to meet his parents on 1st April 2010.
 
What came out of our interaction with his parents and other family members was a shocking tale of how a young and bright Dalit student from very poor background was victimized so much on caste grounds in one of the premier educational institutions of the country that despite his entire record of struggle all through his life, he finally lost his willingness to even live.
The Documentary ‘The Death of Merit’ is based on these testimonies and is a result of our amateur efforts to bring out the truth behind the kind of caste oppression suffered by Dalit and Adivasi students in higher education and the resulting suicides of our bright students like Balmukund Bharti.

    SC/ST MPs must move a Bill in Parliament to modify Prevention of Atrocities Act to issue licensed pistols to SC/ST community to prevent forward caste atrocities.

    We can also revoke the 1932 Round Table Conference Resolution and seek Autonomy/Independence/Homeland for SC/ST communities via a Bill in Indian Parliament.
