Learning through working. Working at the grassroots made me realise the big difference between those who claim to represent communities as well as the communities themselves. Common man is crushed between the ambitions of various individuals to lead and dominate. The dominant and high numbered communities will always dominate our discourse and the most marginalised are losing in this entire discourse. That is the reason why Mushahar remain at the marginalised and the issue of manual scavenging still not on our top agenda and to eliminate that the community has to decide its own organisations..


I am devoted to freedom of ideas and expression. I personally feel that we in the subcontinent want to dominate and control our discourse and each one of is a ultra nationalist in terms of their caste and community. Nationalism is not just national and political but it is equally in term of religion and caste. I feel each kind of nationalism is a dominant discourse which deny the dissenter a right to speak.

At the end, we all want to listen the truth suitable to us.. we have become expertised in the art of speaking truth of convenience. As long as that remain hall mark of our society and we speak to already converts, this society will remain stagnant, it will always try to control our ideas and choices. We need to oppose any such perception, ideas that want to control our mind and victimise us.

To understand India further, I feel, it is good to do foot walk, ( Padyatras) to various parts of the country. I have so far done it thrice covering nearly 1500-2000 kilometers. It is always interesting to see how people are coping their issues and what is the reason of their exploitation.

LUDHIANA: Irked over delay in regularization of sanitation employees, members of Balmiki Youth Federation and workers of sanitation committees blocked the traffic at Bharat Nagar Chowk on Monday. They alleged that the state government and Municipal Corporation officials were playing with their lives by not fulfilling their promises.

The regularization of the sanitation employees had been hanging fire for the last two years but despite notifications and preparation of the lists, the authorities had not regularized even a single employee. The authorities even cancelled the lists saying they were not up to the mark. The employees demanded for the regularization of around 3,400 employees immediately. Warning the authorities for regularizing the employees as soon as possible, the staff said otherwise they would launch a stir. The members informed that in every public meeting, chief minister Parkash Singh Badal promised to appoint the employees. "We would continue our protest until we would get our right and regularization takes place," said Pardeep Bohad.

I would request the readers to respond in English or Hindi as it would be difficult for me to understand many other languages.
