Friends: All of us had experience with Dalit communities during our time in SOP so we know the kind of situations they face. Here is a petition, sent by a close friend of mine, which gives us an opportunity to support Dalit students for the right to a good education.
The following is an online petition against discrimination of Dalit students in Indian universities. Please sign in this and make this campaign a success. This comes as another reminder to all friends who haven't either received this message or got but haven't signed this petition. Please ignore this message if you have already signed in this. This needs to be taken up seriously when hundreds of Dalit students are denied of their right to higher studies in most of the professional institutions. Also there aer several cases where Dalit students were forced out of the campus even after geting admitted. Futher there are scores of cases of suicide of Dalit students. Hence I request you to take it seriously and also to send it to friends on your list so that we could have at least 10 million (1 crore) signatures by July 15.

Victory breeds hatred, for the conquered is unhappy. Persons who have given up both victory and defeat, the contented, they are happy. (Buddhist wisdom)
