    Sad news. Dalits and Bramins , higher casts are all childre of each other. Every higher cast has a dalit family to work for them During the day time. Morning higher priest goes to temple for pooja and dirty politcs, dalit boy entertains the masters wife and daughters. late in the evening madam goes to temple for harikatha, dalit womens job is to entertain the high priest.

    All R children of each other.this has been going on for generations. once father dies son and daughters takes over the tradition of inbreading. still when it comes to friendship they kill their own daughters and sons in the name of higher cast. for their lust dont mind their own daughters, sons , sisters and brothers. what do U say Ganesh mamoo.? Racism ? what racism ?

    Dear media person, dont paint this incident as "dalit beaten to death" instead lover beaten to death" would have been more appropriate. They didnt beat him because he is a dalit, but they beat him because he loved the girl. Unfortunately, he came from dalit family so his caste was high lighted. So in my opinion, here caste is not an issue, but the real issue is love.
