There are some people- some times majority of them, who will question you.But,we ought to take a humanitarian view and sympathize with them.The Caste arrogance can some time be without any motives as the caste regulated person may not be doing things as per any plan.It is often a socio-psychosomatic problem where sense of the caste superiority gets into the very Central Nervous System CNS].For instance,there may be dinner party where guests are relishing goat meat,but all of a sudden,news breaks that the meat supplier had served dog-meat.Many guests can immediately develop nausea and start omitting all over.But,as a matter of fact,the meat was of goat and that of dog. How do we explain this? There was no problem with the meat,the
problem was with an idea- that of dog meat. It was that idea which disturbed the Physiological condition of the guests as for ages our CNS has stored the idea
of rejecting dog meat.
Likewise, those who hate Dalits may not be actually anti-Dalit as they are victims of the age long caste system where Dalits are seen in a certain way.
So, instead of developing any negative feeling about such people, we ought to sympathize with them, and offer Dalit Therapy as the remidy.
