I have just one question.
So what's the point? K of Presstalk had tagged me
That post was about the persistent discrimination of Dalits in tsnumai relief programmes several months after the tsunami.
I don't want to say much more about that. Saket and other anti-reservationist right-wing bloggers won't see my point because they don't want to. They will blog at the next given opportunity about how reservations are responsible for all our ills, how we have thrown meritocracy out of the window; but how often do you find them making posts about caste discrimination
? All they would say about it is that it's 'bad', 'unfortunate'. They will say that the 'solution' is 'education'; but what when the educated discriminate
I know what they will say: you can't use "anecdotal evidence" to make a generalisation.
Ah, but how many anecdotes do they want to accept the truth of caste in the city?
Some time ago I did a study of a partucular profession in a particular city and I would like them to refute what I found.
Anyway, I am supposed to pass on this tag to five bloggers: Saket, River, Ballofyarn, Harini, and Patrix.
Here's what you have to do:
1. delve into your blog archive.
2. find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. tag five people to do the same.
Update (6 Oct): The tag was taken up by Saket, Patrix, River, and Harini. I see that my title "Tag 23" has been used by some of them.
