AGAINST BRAHMINICAL TRADITION: A DALIT CRITIQUE OF INDIAN MODERNITY  

P. Kesava Kumar

 

I don’t know when I was born/but I was killed on this very soil thousand years ago/ ‘dying again and again to be born again’/ I don’t know the karma theory/I am being born again and again where I was dead.’ 1(Kalekuri Prasasd)

 

History!/ all these years how could you hide/ the fire in our mouth…./how could you tolerate/inequality and inhumanity.2 (Juluri Gowrishankar)

 

With a smile on his face/Shambhuka is slaying Rama/ with his axe/Ekalavya is cutting Drona’s thumb away/with his small feet/ Bali is sending Vamana down to pathala/ With needles in his eyes/ and lead in is ears/Manu, having cut his tongue is seen rolling on the graveyard/standing on the merciless sword of time/and roaring with rage/The Chandala is seen hissing four houndson Sankaracharya/ Oh..!/ The History that is occurring today/Is the most Chandala history3 (Siva Sagar)
