(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

The Dalit Diaspora

The Dalit literature,
The non-Dalits writing
As for their doctorates
And career advancement.

The Aryans meted out
To the non-Aryans,
But they too were a divided lot
And none could reform them in India.

The situation worsened
During the medieval times
When the Sati system, the child marriage
Raked us.
There was none to bail
The crisis
Out of,
None to show the light of knowledge.

The missionaries definitely lifted
Them out,
But converted to,
Sowing the seeds of animosity.
