On 27th April 2017, CBSE declared the results for the IIT Mains and Dalit boy Kalpit Veerwal was declared topper. Dalit, Kalpit Veerwal, topped IIT Mains with a perfect score – 360/360! What merit these Brahmins and so called upper castes talk about? All this smashes the fake logic of so-called upper castes people that merit this, merit that, blah, blah…and Brahminical media cannot digest the news about Dalit becoming a topper.
If topper would have been from Sharma, Thaukar, Dwivedi or Trivedi, he would have been all over the place! Kalpit Veerwal belongs to Dalit community hence brahminical media tried its best to hide his caste and to which community he belongs to.
When Dalit students commit suicides or raped in universities and colleges, Brahminical media has always mentioned caste and community along with the victim in the headline news then why not the achievement of young Dalit boy mentioned in headlines?
Why does Brahminical media loves only depressed and crying Dalits? Why can’t it see Dalit achievers?
Many times you might also have heard that – caste doesn’t matter, talent does. Then, why people are busy searching caste of IIT Mains topper? Many are searching about the caste of Kalpit Veerwal and landing on Velivada website. Here is a screenshot of top 10 search results those led to Velivada website today. Notice how many are related to caste and the trend is same almost every time any Dalit achieves something. The Same trend was noticed when last year Tina Dabi, Dalit girl, became IAS topper.
Here are few headlines and see how major news channels/newspapers covered the news about IIT topper Kalpit Veerwal, who belongs to Dalit community. There is no denying that whole Indian media is brahminical and one of the worst in the world. Whole Brahminical media blacklisted and didn’t mention that he belongs to Dalit community in their headlines.
Now see below, how Brahminical media covers stories about Dalit suicides and Dalit students getting raped in school, colleges or universities.
In general, how many Dalits get a chance to study or go to better schools? Not many can afford to attend coaching or good English speaking schools. So, with limited resources what Dalits have achieved in last 50-60 years is beyond imagination. This has only been possible with hard work by Dalits. We belong every achievement by Dalits should be celebrated and mentioned.
Merit is not any particular caste group’s personal property; it is the opportunities and encouragement that matter.
So why does Brahminical media love depressed and crying and raped and murdered Dalits and not Dalits who are the topper or doing well? The reason is simple, Brahminical media doesn’t want Dalits to take inspiration from Dalit heroes or Dalit achievers hence they try their best to hide or suppress the news about Dalit heroes. They don’t want that Dalit-Bahujans get inspiration from their own history, own strength and smash the upper caste hegemony. Dr. Ambedkar wrote about it 80-90years ago or so.
Why then do the caste Hindus get irritated? The reason for their anger is very simple. Your behavior with them on a par insults them. Your status is low. You are impure, you must remain at the lowest rung; then alone they will allow you to live happily. The moment you cross your level, the struggle starts. The above instances also prove one more fact. Untouchability is not a timely or temporary feature. It is a permanent one. To put it straight, it can be said that the struggle between the Hindus and the Untouchables is a permanent phenomenon. It is eternal, because the religion which has given you the lowest level in the society is itself eternal, according to the belief of the high-caste people. No change according to times and circumstances is possible. You are the lowest of the rungs today. You shall remain the lowest forever. This means the struggle between Hindus and Untouchables will continue forever. How you will survive through this struggle, is a main question. And unless you think it over, there is no escape.~ Babasaheb Ambedkar
