Abstract

Last month a 26 year old Dalit PhD student at the University of Hyderabad took his own life following an unjust indictment from the administration. Amal Shahid writes that despite a progressive constitution and policies to support lower caste access to higher education, the Rohith Vemula case highlights that even the students who do make it to university still face severe discrimination which seriously undermines their full and equal participation.
