Thambraas (Thamizhnadu Brahmins Association) held their Silver Jubilee celebrations on Dec 24th & 25th. The meeting was not widely reported, I read only an excerpt from Sundaravadivel's Tamil Blog. All these caste association meetings have a set pattern - huge crowds, some celebrity from that caste talking nonsense, proclaiming that their caste is powerful, so many MLA seats, generally issuing some incendiary statements. We are used to this racket.
But to see Sujatha, a writer whom I idolised for sometime, participate was a big let down. And he went on to write in his weekly column, that there are similarities between the problems faced by Brahmins and Dalits. By what convoluted logic, he only knows. You too Mr. Sujatha?
