It was 4.15 P.m, in the evening at Rohith Vemula Central University, I was sitting in the library. I was thinking why can’t we write some poem or at least a paragraph, on Dalit literature works, which is imbibed with our life. I looked at some of the books and noted down some titles related to Dalit’s and marginal community’s life. I was trying to write a poem in a rustle ruled paper.
Some of the Dr. Ambedkar’s and Prof. illaiah shepherd’s books made my thinking well, and I penned like this…
In this BUFFALO NATIONALISM
GOD AS A POLITICAL PHILOSOPHER,
But it is an UNTOUCHABLE GOD, and
It is a WEAPON OF OTHERs.
As a UNTOUCHABLE SPRING,
Many times I asked myself
WHY I AM NOT A HINDU,
CASTE IN INDIA, THE MECHANISM, GENESIS, AND DEVELOPMENT
Made us to search
WHAT PATH TO SALVATION
of the suppressed, the
WORDS OF FREEDOM, A IDEAS OF NATION,
will upsurge through sharing the brotherhood
THOUGHTS ON PAKISTAN.
This intellectual process will embark while we
TURNING THE POT, TILLING THE LAND and questioning the
DIGNITY OF LABOR IN OUR TIMES,
Oh ! dear Anti-nationals, You can ask me, then what about the
THOUGHTS ON LINGUISTIC STATES, and
STATE AND MINORITIES,
I can say, “MAHARASHTRA AS A LINGUISTIC PROVINCE”
there is some outpouring for
SOCIAL JUSTICE AND POLITICAL SAFEGUARDS FOR DEPRESSED CLASSES.
Now you can realize,
WHY WAS NAGPUR CHOSEN
With this inception, we should process the
ANNIHILATION OF CASTE
This history is not only relied upon the decline of the
RIDDLES OF HINDUISM,
but it should tarnish the depression of
THE UNTOUCHABLES, WHO WERE THEY AND WHY THEY BECOME UNTOUCHABLE?.
Please do not ask this to the subaltern writers.
WAITING FOR A VISA
to ask this question to the western intellectuals?
So sad,! ! !
Please Ask Dr.B.R. Ambedkar,
WHO WERE THE SHUDRAS?
He says they are living
AGAINST THE MADNESS OF MANU….
Before finishing my write up. Around 4.30 P.m I got a call from Prasanth, I couldn’t hear properly that, what was prasanth said. But I understood there is a protest for some good causes. Immediately I reached the shopcom. A mixed mob of professors and students with placards, raising the voice for missing of Dr. Ambedkar statue from the Velivada. It happened in the middle of the night. Many people thought it could be done by the “Dark night robbers”. The Dark night Robbers always do this kind of robbery with task sheets in the middle of the night. I was wondering, there will be securities in the shop com, might be 3 or 4 from the past three months I seen. Then How can somebody steals the Bronze bust of Dr.B.R. Ambedkar, the sky was crying, with the tear of the sky we went to the main gate, we asked the public, anybody know who stolen Dr. Sir’s bust.
Zohail K.P said, “may be some jokers want to establish their statues here, that is why they removed Dr. Ambedkar bust, but they should have taken the 2 books of Ambedkar’s, “The annihilation of caste, and “The constitution of India”…
prasanth said, “they desegregated Dr. Ambedkar, they playing with Dalit students emotions and education, and he said,” should an institution suffer because of an individual?
Munna said, ” Even Ambedkar’s statue can’t be secured in a central university, how can a Dalit students secure and educate himself from this kind of institution…
I was thinking, why these robbers, robbing the students rights always in the middle of the night,like they stolen Rohith fellowship, and Rohith from us, and Velivada tent, etc.. there should be some reason behind any action. My thinking went on…May be they do not want this Dalit and marginal community boys to get educate themselves peacefully.
There was a clutter, one police Innova car came, I can see a uniformed policeman, on his cap “IPS” written on it. A blue strap on his left side sleeves. He came to us. He is Mr. Vijayakumar Pedapudi. IPS. From Special Investigation Branch. We appealed to him about the robbery. The rain stop crying now. By the time, Bujji Uma anna came with an effigy, who is specialist in making effigy, in the head of that effigy, a white paper pasted on it. On that paper, somebody wrote it in a red marker pen, “Apparao podile” , “RSS”, “BJP”.
We blocked the main gate, we did not allow anyone until our program get over. In the meantime, many Hcu’ians came with their Vehicle and begging us to go outside. I could see a couples, might be from the so-called student Army. When we raising slogans that couple were laughing at us. We seen an Ambulance, we gave the way for it immediately. People try to go out from the main gate can’t even wait and see, what is going on in front of the University. They were in better hurry. I thought “if they want to go washroom urgently, they should go inside because they kept the face like that. Or else they going to meet Donald. I felt like, want to apply some Bullshit on their face, nearby I could see some also. I was trying to take that bullshit by my left hand. Vijaykumar. IPS, came to me and told me that, don’t behave like an idiot, with your emotion and angry you cannot achieve anything. I returned back without touching the bullshit.
From the public, some people revealed the secret Task sheet of the robbers. In that, ” when these robbers all going to meet at Gachibowli stadium, how to trespass through small gate of rohith university, and how to jump inside the guest house, and plans about the next robbery. Even there were instructions for prime robbers how much milk, and water should keep it in refrigerator. After seeing that Robbery Task Sheet, All our eyebrow went up like a half moon.
Suddenly there was a Whoop among the people. we come to know that somebody stolen the effigy also. Immediately I called Ms.Lolly( SSB canteen dog). Sometimes, I used to offer her “Bonda, Biscuits” She sniffs well. The public and Vijay IPS, went with Lolly. Lolly went to the shop com. Inside the Velivada she sniffed well. Then She directly went to the yoga center. We find that, on international yoga day the Dark night robbers came to the yoga center. Thereafter Lolly(ssb canteen dog) took us to the Peacock lake. She searched around five minutes. After that Lolly went inside the guest house, she searched fiercely, her sharp sniffing power doesn’t allow the robber to escape , were he hiding himself under the cot. Police looked under the cot his face was covered with the effigy face. The special branch investigation officer, searched his wanted list, and he said, “he is the one of the main robber in the Dark night robber’s group, yesterday only we arrested Head of the Dark night robbers group from MHRD (Murderer of Harijans, Reserved people,and Dalits).Then the IPS officer opened the wanted file and showed the picture to us.
the Robber and the wanted person are same. Immediately the IPS officer locked the hand cuff on Robber’s hand. We got back the effigy back, and burnt it in front of the main gate. After seeing this, Lolly! Rolling On the Floor while Laughing. We done our protest well. End of the program Prasanth shout some words from Kathi Padmarao’s poem.
BHARATHA BHUMI BIDDADA.. oH sorry, in English.aahhaa.

Brother Vasil said that, ” This is Ramjan Month, we are doing fasting for Allah, but anytime we are ready to die with you to Annihilate caste, and we will support this anti – caste movement.
After that Vijaykumar pedapudi, IPS, gifted a small carved, a white granite statue of Dr. B.R Ambedkar’s statue to the Rohith University, and he said, “Dear friends this thief have many names which he earned. Like Murderer, Trespasser, Plagiarist, Anti – Dalit, and now the “Dark night Robber. We will punish him according to the law. Thank you. Jai Bhim and Happy Eid to all.
