“The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility,” he wrote in his suicide note. “To a vote. To a number. To a thing. Never was a man treated as a mind.” He was not treated as an individual, but as a thing that could be handled to the others' liking. He was an object, no longer valued for who he was as a person. “My birth is my fatal accident.” He wrote that his birth should have given him unalienable rights such as dignity and respect, but instead handed him discrimination.
Ginni Mahi, a girl of lower caste is embracing her caste and celebrating its diversity instead of shaming it. She, along with many other Dalit girls have struck a movement by singing pride songs about caste and says she is “proud to be a chamar.”
Usually Dalits have been exploited and of the lowest class, but recently they have grasped their own history. They are proud to be who they are and sing about their greatness. “Lower-caste slurs like chamar have become a badge of pride to be worn on T-shirts, caps, car stickers and tattoos.” "When people swing to my music, I want them to think about the abuse we continue to face," said S.S. Azad a singer in the same genre.
"First you should be proud of who you are, then you rise up to destroy all caste identities."
