On August 9, the Madras High Court observed that it was both a moral obligation and the legal mandate for the state to permit Dalits to worship at the Badrakaliamman temple in Kallimedu, a village near Vedaranyam in Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu, and to perform rituals during the Aadi festival. It further hoped that “some compromise” would be worked out_______________________. With this, the curtain has come down on the temple festival even before it could be observed.

Answer – 4)

The Badrakaliamman temple stands on a site claimed to be some 800 years old. The medieval poet Kalamegam had composed a song about it. Now administered by the government of Tamil Nadu through the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department, its last major reconsecration was conducted in 1957. The temple’s annual festival takes place over five days in the Tamil month of Aadi (mid-July to mid-August). _________________________. The local Dalits (Adi Dravidars) join the festivities but do not have the privilege of holding the mandagapad

1) In the first instance, Dalits assert themselves to a right over social space, a demand often framed in the language of religion

2) In the first instance, Dalits assert themselves to a right over social space, a demand often framed in the language of religion

3) As in many Tamil villages, the intermediate castes sponsor and conduct rituals and festivities — called mandagapadi — on specific days assigned according to custom

4) The local dominant caste cares little for this demand — and may in fact see it as a resolution to their immediate fears

5) None of above.

 

Answer – 3)

2) But then it is up to the executive to enforce it

3) The two communities number some 150 families each

4) The fear of the collapse of law and order is enough to quieten the courts

5) None of above.

 

Answer – 3)

The Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, headed by Thol. Thirumavalavan, has considerable influence and presence among the Dalits.

Pakkirisamy, filed a writ petition in the Madras High Court.____________________. “Prima facie,” Justice M.M. Sundresh observed that “the petitioner cannot be treated differently” and posted the case for a later date to hear respondents’ objections.

Can the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) be far behind? The State president, Tamilisai Soundararajan, paid a visit two weeks ago. _____________________. Later a fringe group, the Hindu Makkal Katchi, was involved in negotiating a compromise. As its anti-Dalit image continues to be reinforced by the Una protests in Gujarat and the insult by a senior party functionary to Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati, the BJP is under enormous pressure to shore up its claim to speak for the entire Hindu community.

1) The Dalits’ struggle for an equal share of honours in temple festivals has repeatedly ended in failure

2) It is rumoured that a senior Hindutva ideologue too had intervened, promising to meet Dalit demands if the conversion threat was dropped

5) None of above.

Most curiously, the history of codification of the rights of people with disabilities coincides more or less with the commencement of the era of economic reforms.______________________, they were notably few and far between, informed largely by an ad hoc approach to addressing issues, or at times a spillover from an activist judiciary.

2) In the event, even the staunchest critic of liberalisation would have to acknowledge that the greatest legislative and policy changes since Independence that affect

5) None of these.

 

Answer – 3)

Any serious evaluation of what people with disabilities have gained in these past 25 years would probably have to begin with showcasing the political will India’s leadership displayed to generate the very tools to arrive at such an independent and impartial assessment. ___________________decennial population census.
