Something like that ... that was about 10 years ago ... I wouldn't be surprised if homes have western style toilets with flush and septic tanks installed by now.

Rakhiji ... I do apologize cause article has to do with dalits and not bhangees and jamadars whose profession is to clean toilets. Nothing to do with caste system ... all to do with hygiene. You will not shake hands with a surgeon just out of operation theater. A bhangee/jamadar has been to 20 homes and now to yours to clean toilets and comode ... nice person invites you home cause plans to cook your favorite food ... how many among us will accept invitation and dress up to accompany good person? Hypocrites and practitioners of scat fetish are excepted. I will not. Strictly to do with hygiene ... not discrimination.

Badri ji, all this selling farmland to private developers is only in small pockets of India like Gurgaon and Noida and on the peripheries of other major urban centres. Other places, it's the same old, same old.

And what kind of shit is this with our folks? Kids are getting free meals, and their parents want to pollute their minds with 'caste' and crap?
at this time the best placed people who can do this are congress. as you constantly remind us they have complete backing of 'aam adami' of India, your beloved party understands common man's issues and can play caste politics very well. They can play it such that people do away with caste barriers.
Dhongress is also in govt so they can introduce a bill and make it a law that EVERYONE is treated equally in this country, no favours, no reservations.

dont hail congress when you please and come running to these people when you feel like it.

You really think only Congress is to blame? What about parties like RPI which is now joining Shiv Sena and BJP just to bring in the 'Dalit' votes? What about Mayawati who does the same with caste vote banks?

Every party is into it, even your 'oh we are so pure' BJP. So dont just expect political parties to clean up their act. Its the social activists who can bring about change in society.

Baba Ramdev is just a RSS stooge and hence he wont go after issues like caste which might hurt the other RSS stooge BJP.
