1m Dalits To Embrace Buddhism On Nov. 4

1M DALITS TO EMBRACE BUDDHISM ON NOV. 4
http://www.hclinfinet.com/2001/OCT/W...aInsideGN6.jsp

New Delhi
One million dalits will convert to Buddhism next month in what will be the largest event of its kind in the world, the organisers announced on Monday.
They were sick and tired of the mental and physical torture of upper caste Hindus, said Mr Ram Raj of the All India Confederation of Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes Organisations.

"The dalits will be breaking out of the shackles of the caste system and will be empowering themselves," he told reporters here, giving details of the November 4 programme.

His group claims a membership of four million - the bulk of them being government employees. A fourth of India's one billion people are dalits, who have been traditionally discriminated against by the upper caste Hindus. Although laws enacted over the years seek to protect dalit rights, intolerance is widespread, particularly in rural areas.

"The dalits will be liberated from mental bondage. By embracing Buddhism, we are not converting. We are only reaffirming our sense of values," Mr Raj said. The bulk of the converts would be from North India. All of them, he emphasised, would be coming to New Delhi paying their own passage, Mr Raj said. "We will be spending about Rs 1 million on the stage and other arrangements." (IANS)

In a related note.. Read this..

A Zambian man divorced his wife after he found a frog in a cup of tea she gave him, a Lusaka newspaper reported Tuesday. The Post reported that 28-year-old Andrew Nyoka had left 26-year-old Catherine Nyoka last year for another woman.

``One time I found a frog in a cup of tea she had served me. That is the reason I went for another woman,'' the independent newspaper quoted Nyoka, whose surname means ``snake'' in English, as telling a community court.

Judges Chidongo Shawa and Wilson Makuwerere granted him a divorce, saying it was clear the couple's marriage could not be saved.

to find her one true prince

and raising the cup to lips

Once 'Snake' sipped the 'green' tea
he ran away clutchin his wee wee
Now alone she sips thoughfully
her chilled on the frogs, whiskey.
