Violence as a Spectacle: The Dalit Question By Parvin Sultana

While many have been euphoric that our great nation has moved beyond caste, frequent cases of caste violence prove otherwise. Dalits who were made to bear the brunt of untouchability are placed at the lowest rung of the social ladder and are often victims of the worst kind of atrocities. While formal laws banning untouchability and prevention of atrocities have been passed to stop such acts, they continue to be pervasive pointing to deep rooted casteism. After so many decades, India continues to fail Babasaheb Ambedkar so far as the caste question goes.
