An Earnest Appeal to Fulfil the Dream

Dear Dalit Friends,It is my earnest appeal to all Dalit friends to create our own literature. How long should we depend on translations? I have a dream. What is that dream? The dream is that Dalit Literature should become compulsory course in Departments of English like Indian Writing in English. There are many Dalit faculty who have been in Universities working on temporary/permanent basis. I am sure all of us have faced many problems in coming to the present position. This does not exclude the Dalits who are in other professions. They too are welcome to create our own literature in the Global language.Nothing is impossible.

Origin of Priesthood

Priesthood belongs to Vaishnava Dasubut pushed into the corner ruthlessly for the selfish false status in conspired Hindu society.I affirm now and negate my untouchable status and call myself a highly respected priest with human touch.I deconstruct and rewrite my priesthood and include other castes to follow me.I was the nature worshipper and not a low person unlike the imposed status.I warn you not to call me with any other name.I am the original worshipper of Lord Vishnu.I am the disciplined devotee and as equal as any other fame.I am in temple,  I am the priest in sanctum sanctorum, offer my obeisances, pray for well being of all. I throw an open challenge to the Brahmins and others to prevent in reciting the shlokas.You can not, Can you?Ha! Ha! Ha! Can you, you cannot? Time changes the fate.Time replaces late.It is now my date.
