Note: 2

Pointers for the ignorant:
1. Dalit is not a caste. It's social identity that is constructed in order to subvert the demeaning status(es) accorded by the Hindu religion.
2. Dalit pride and Thevar/Gounder pride are not the same. People who cannot see the difference can be safely categorized as idiots.

Suresh,
Why cant you write about how Gounders treat SCs based on your personal experiences? I believe it would help in opening up a nice discussion.

Useful link.

Bhuvanesh,
I don't know if it would open up a discussion, but yeah, I have to share my experience. I'll probably do a podcast than writing because it will be lengthy narrative.

Hi suresh,

A podcast would be welcome, its been a long time since you have done one. I look forward to hear your thoughts on this.

Cheers
