Madulai: Members of the Scheduled Caste from the village of S Valayapatti say that they have faced various forms of discrimination for many years and that they have recently been attacked by members of the intermediate caste.
They have to tolerate them because their elders are used to putting up with this discriminatory practice and do not allow them to come forward in the face of the outside world afraid of a rebound.
Until a few months ago, the village was popular with the double tumbler system, where caste people often went.
There are only two tea shops in the village, all run by members of the middle caste.
When tea is placed in a wine glass made of stainless steel, we can use itand-throw cups.
In the past two months, they stopped selling tea to us.
Similarly, grocery stores are run by middle caste people.
There are about 400 families belonging to the intermediate caste in the village, while there are about 50 families belonging to the Scheduled Caste.
Just a month ago, T. Dhanalakshmi, from the Scheduled Caste, opened a small shop.
But it's not easy for her to run the store because those who own the middle caste of the store are creating trouble.
A popular distributor of packaged milk sachet did not supply me milk due to pressure from the owners of the other two stores.
'I have to go 14 kilometers to get to Tirumangalam to buy milk,' said Dana Lakshmi.
When the food shop operates in a community hall near the Muthalamman Temple, members of the intermediate caste do not like the SC members coming all the way.
Contrary to them, the nearby library became a food store and supplies were distributed at different times.
Only two hours of time were allocated to us, as was the case after completing the supply to intermediate caste families.
In addition, villagers Periyakaruppi said better quality supplies were kept for them.
In addition, a young man, Ravi, said that scheduled caste members are not allowed to take a bath in a public water tank.
When they discussed the issue, officials said they would build a separate issue for them.
