“No onions please, we’re brahmins”: a serving of castefor breakfast 

By Shreya Ramakrishnan, April 27, 2018 



Despite being from a cosmopolitan family, Irealised that every day, I was unwittingly consuming our caste on my plate. Inthe game of kitchen politics, caste is a far more deeply riven divide, than thedifferences between North and South Indian food. 





Umakant,Ph. D 



My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can lose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.
