    Osmania University students want beef in hostel mess - The Times of India

    These idiots in OU indulge in everything except perhaps studying. :frusty:

    And do Dalits actually eat beef..? I have not seen them do so in TN...

    By beef, do they mean buffalo?....because cow slaughter is banned in most of India (except Kashmir..they dont care).

    Beef is a staple diet for a some dalits and adivasis, as it is cheaper than mutton.

    Somewhere near on the highway, I am right now sitting in what looks to be a Muslim owned restaurant and it's a "shudh shakahari" restaurant probably respecting the sentiments in this area.

    If they want beef, then go buy and cook it yourself in your hostel rooms (if cooking in hostel rooms is permitted under University norms). Why this tantrum insisting that beef be served in a communal dining hall?

    If this is allowed, you will have half the state rioting, if it isn't you'll have NGO's screaming about lack of free speach or rights for disadvantaged communities.

    Of all the points mentioned in the article, this one caught my eye:

    Ravan, a dalit!!!

    What does it say about the quality of the leadership of this particular group?

    Not aware of Periyar's ideology. But Ravan was a brahmin right?

    Yes he is but then again Periyar symbolised him as a wronged native kiing killed by a foreigner.Hmm The TDP already started countering Telangana using Periyar

    OT but, there is another theory about Ravan.
    That he was as great worshiper of lord Vishnu and he was granted immortality by Vinshu as a reward for his devoltion.
    He could only die at the hands of Vishnu or his incarnation, hence he kidnapped Sita to attain mosksha by die by the hands of Lord Ram.

    Has anyone heard/ read this theory?

    I thought Ravana was the greatest disciple of Shiva not Vishnu!


    I'm confused, but this is not probably the thread for me to ask for clarification.

    AP division is after Periyar's time.Periyar's ideology is used as an tool to knock off support from the lower classes to the T movement

    Periyar thought of the Ramayan as an epic battle between Aryans and Dravdians. Even Hanuman is supposed to be a "South Indian Dalit" :noidea:

    I think it was Shiva

    Goodwork

    Far too often we non-vegetarians are locked out because school/college canteen only serves veg. Mine had sagar ranta wtf?

    Either serve both or dont serve anything. veggies can go pluck leaves from the trees if they are paranoid.
