On Dismissal of Dalit Students from Rajasthan School

This highly deplorable act is an indicator of the subordinate status of dalits and the obnoxious practices being carried on by the so-called upper castes even sixty seven years after the country attained independence. Dalits continue to be segregated, confined to the margins economically and socially and are denied basic amenities in many parts of the country. Unacceptable practices like the two-glass system and untouchability are still prevalent in many states.
