    TN is supposeds to be one of the top states today and this is what is happening in one village there. Dalits who refused to work in the fields of land owning Rettiars 5 years ago are being ostracised by the landlords and not allowed access to water, sanitation, etc. Portion of the land also belongs to one Radhakrishna Rettiar, member of the Communist Party of India. The Collector of the district reportedly told the Dalits that as the local MLA suppports the Rettiars nothing can be done.

    TN shocker! Dalits lead isolated lives in enclosed fence

    I believe they fenced of their own land because cows were grazing and eating their crop.

    That prevented the Dalits from crossing his land as a short cut to the bus station and other facilities and they had to take a longer and circuitous route.

    And it is good news for the media to give the issue a twist to inflame and appear ever so caring!

    When it comes to wanting privileges and advantages, all become Dalits, irrespective of conversion.

    Narayanan and KGB, the ex President of India and the ignoble ex CJI are also 'Dalits'. That helped them to these high posts. Reality is otherwise though.

    the newspaper report states Hindu Caste Groups have walled off.

    Interesting the leader of the Group is a Communist party boss, and they were supposed to be above caste lines.... This is India

    facepalm @ the collector.

    Is he the collector or the arsewipe for the rettiars ?

    When dalit-upper caste relations are improving all over the state, Uthapuram being a highpoint, much still needs to be done.


    @JP, worst caste atrocities..I dont think worst.

    If it is a private property then the person has every right to put a fence. I don't understand what is the whining of the Rediff.

    It is also possible that Rettiars are scared of Dalits if they are allowed on their side of village they might take one or the other opportunity to file a SC/ST atrocities case. I have seen many false SC/ST atrocities case just to get even and the law is very draconian in not giving a bail for one year.
