A couple of days back, we were watching a documentary on the Buddha. The narrator was describing how the Buddha challenged the hierarchy based on caste. Since my daughter has no knowledge around the caste system, she was stunned to find that the religion/culture that she was born into divides people up right at birth.
It was reported on May 31, 2018 that Bikash Karkidholi, eight years old, was not admitted in Shree Krishna Dwarpayan Gurukul Bedbidhya Asharam in Bhadrapur, Jhapa because he was a Dalit. I wanted to know if all Sanskrit schools are denying admissions to Dalit children. I went to Bhagwat Sanyas Ashram located at Ram-Mandir site in Pashupatinath temple premises.
