Question:

Read these two poems by Dalit writers. Why do you think the poster is titled‘Hidden Apartheid’?

Answer:

  • The statement, ‘This water tap is open to all castes and religions’ show that at one or the other stage of time, the society practiced discrimination based on caste and religion which was later abolished by someone who made the tap open to all. Earlier when discrimination was practised, people were not allowed to avail all opportunities.
  • The second poem reveals how people slept without having a handful of meal. These examples reflect social discrimination being practiced in the society. So, these have a proper heading i.e., ‘Hidden Apartheid’
