Today I get a chance to view the below video showing horrible Caste System in India.
Especially this video proves that Dalit Untouchability still continues in India.
This video documentary is created by the Director Stalin K by doing lot of hard work. It seems he spent more than four years traveling the length and breadth of the India to expose the continued oppression of "Dalits". And, it looks the video is created in an un-biased way. And, it covers Dalit oppression in all religions including Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Sikhism and in communists too.
This video shows appropriate sub-title in English as this video covers people talking various Indian languages such as Tamil and Hindi.
You will be shocked to see the Dalits being forced to dismount from their cycles and remove their shoes when in the upper caste part of the village.

Previously I had written many articles about the fast growth of Social media. But
after watching this video I started thinking that whether Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) is representing the common people, especially in India. Because previously I never come across any Facebook updates or tweets telling about this horrible fact of untouchability still continuing in India. Instead, I used to get Facebook status messages criticizing reservation policies. The worst part is, even the persons who benefited from reservation used to share/like those messages. So, I think Social Media is useless till most of the people including poor and oppressed people start using it in India.
And, I would like to know whether social media represents the entire community in other countries. You can share your thoughts thro' the comments and remember to mention your Country name.
