Dear Friends

Greetings! This is not a surprise atall, it was bound to happen someday. Now that the suit has been filed, it mightopen the floodgate and lead to more litigation coming forward. The CasteHindus, the so called upper caste people those who always believe in practicingthe brahmanical value system wholly or even partially and thereby do not minddiscriminating against Dalits, Adivasis (Indigenous people), Other BackwardCaste (OBCs) people, people from the North Eastern states in India and EastAsians, Blacks/African Americans, Muslims, Christians etc. The discriminationtakes place on a varying scale from time to time and from place to place andmay depend on the particular context as well. It could take several subtle andeven non-subtle forms of discrimination and exclusion. 


Attached here with this mail, you would find a copy ofthe suit that has been filed against  theAmerican IT giant – CISCO. 


Do pass it on others in yourcircle/network.

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.
