Village Headman facing discrimination


“In happiness or in suffering, we are always kept aside,” says Kinsuram Chow the village head of Domha Tola village in Chattisgarh who is facing the burden of being born into a caste considered and treated as “untouchables”  in India.

Even though Kinsuram is working hard to make his village a better place, people do not see his effort and only see his caste. This discrimination ranges from not touching him to a barber not cutting his hair. All this discrimination has made Kinsuram very disheartened.

The enforcement of any disability arising out of Untouchability shall be an offence punishable in accordance with law as per the Article 17 of the Indian Constitution.  It was drafted in 1949 specifically to eradicate & abolish the practice of Untouchability. Yet  65 years later, the practice still reigns in far too many parts of the country. Community Correspondent Bhan Sahu brings this story which shows how the right to lead a dignified life is still just a dream for many rural poor in India.
