Atrocities

For two thousand long years, Dalits have been subjugated, exploited, oppressed and dehumanized. Atrocity was their step-mother. Whenever they raised their voice for a bread with respect, atrocity stretched her hand and muffled them. Nevertheless, they were human beings, so they kept asking for that bread of human dignity. The high castes heaped on them the massive atrocities. They dehumanized these ill-fated fellows, however, what is shocking is that even animals got a far better treatment. Subjugation has its limit; exploitation has its limits; oppression has its limits; and everything has its limits but the dehumanization was limitless!

And this dehumanization continues to this day. This is nothing but dehumanization! When these wretched fellows are brutally massacred, it is not because of enmity but because of their assertion of human dignity. The moment these doomed creatures raise their head to take a breezy gasp of freedom, the giant of high caste crushes them under his feet.

Everyday atrocities and dehumanization occurs. We do not feel very happy to tell you how many blows per day per minute we are receiving. The tales are many; the tales are galore. Even the numbers are shocked to represent these heart-wrenching tales! We do not want to tell anything. But our cries must come out.
