An Icon of dalit resistance
Came across the story of Bant Singh, Man from Punjab with grit and song to sing. Indomitable spririt to make one bite the dust, An "icon of Dalit resistance" to fight at any cost.
The girl child with her will to pursue study, Forced outcast pushed her to the gully. Clothes all tattered and prestige forsaken, By brutal mass misdeed to rattle the heaven. How uncouth of those perpetrators? Divide the caste and rule like dictators, Came this man to lead from the front, Brought the hope and trust to face the daunt. With his lost limbs and lost thigh, Stood so strong against the unjust with head high, Fought against the atrocities discriminating human, Kudos to his will so strong to oppose the racial inhumane .
