9 2016 12:07 am Rohith Vemula committed suicide on January 17 Top News As we entered the Gandhi Bhavan in the centre of Hyderabad on August 29 for an in-house meeting organised by Kula Nirmulana Porata Samiti seeking justice for Rohith Vemula we encountered an overwhelming feeling We from the University of Hyderabad were clearly outsiders amongst a sea of people arriving there from all parts of Telangana We who knew Rohith as a student as a friend as a fellow ideologue were mere spectators as people poured in mostly men mostly Dalit mostly daily wage labourers forsaking their work and day’s earnings If not for matters of day-to-day survival we were sure women would have outnumbered men in the meeting What moved these men and women who did not know Rohith Vemula What made them claim a space claim Rohith as their own This claiming of Rohith as one of them was the most visible as a group sang a song describing Rohith as a star now in the skies — “from shadows to the stars” Was it that this sea of people understood Rohith as Dalit connected to them through blood however thin Did they see in Rohith a figure who represented their unsuccessful aspirations for education freedom equality — a better life from the one in the shadows they lived and shared If this is one part of the story the other part is the narrative that the state and its institutions have been reiterating since Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya MLC Ramachandra Rao ABVP’s Susheel Kumar and professor Appa Rao were charged under the SC/ST Atrocities Act immediately after Rohith Vemula’s death What the state and the police have consistently done is to question Rohith’s caste They not only sought to establish Rohith’s caste through establishing his non-existent relationship with his father thereby conforming to an extremely casteist-patriarchal mode but also to completely delegitimise Radhika Vemula’s struggle as a woman who after her separation from her husband early in their marriage brought up three children amongst her own people — the Mala (Dalit) community We need to remember that neither Rohith’s biological father nor Radhika Vemula’s adoptive family has ever claimed Rohith as a Vaddera (OBC) Throughout it is the Dalit community which has asserted that Rohith belonged to them The lost video of Rohith which was circulated in social media and carried to the public by electronic and print media has Rohith himself talking of his caste What then is the state’s interest in asserting otherwise It has to be noted how the state and its machinery conveniently sidelined government and Supreme Court orders — that a child can belong to and claim the mother’s caste The contradictions here are noteworthy: First Rohith being fatherless for all practical purposes ends up not belonging to his mother in his death Secondly and more importantly while for all purposes caste has been a matter of blood and blood alone in this case despite assertions from Rohith’s mother and the whole community it is the state that has taken up the task of redefining blood relations — going against constitutional and judicial pronouncements What do we make of this The National Commission for Scheduled Castes in its report based on documentary evidence and the reports of the district collector of Guntur states that Rohith’s caste is Mala and for all purposes he is an SC Meanwhile the one-man judicial commission’s (constituted by the ministry of human resources to look into “the facts and circumstances of Rohith’s death”) now-leaked reports clearly point to the anxiety of the state The report’s assertion that Rohith was not a Dalit is not only an overstepping of the terms of reference set by MHRD but also a blatant violation of the constitutional norms that authorise the district collector as the only official who can certify a person’s caste This leads to a troubling observation Thus far the state has not negated the discrimination Rohith and Radhika Vemula underwent How do we account for this discrimination if not via caste What is puzzling to everyone who has been involved is the nature of caste and the way it operates in our times Do we see this just as the state’s attempt to avoid acting on the SC/ST Atrocities Act which would then imply that action need not be taken on government functionaries who are held responsible And that both Rohith and Radhika Vemula have fabricated their Dalitness A brief conversation with Thirumal a friend and colleague brought out an interesting argument: The Dalit movement’s constant recourse to constitutional and state measures reflective of an aspiration of a free and equal life in a modern democracy has led to this contradiction The Dalit movement for a long time now has relied on the state and its institutions — largely juridical systems — to redress caste injustice and also to aspire for a society without caste discrimination This reliance on the state indicates an emphasis on moving beyond the confines of framing caste within the biological within the confines of the village and its caste-based systems of justice However this has resulted in a typical control of caste-discourse from the state’s side The state’s need to control is manifest in how it defines Rohith and his mother Radhika Vemula’s caste despite contrary claims emerging from within the community Although a counter discourse is emerging in recent Dalit movements including the Rohith movement and the Una movement the state’s interest in controlling the discourse on caste is apparent The irony of the modern state on which Dalit movement depends too heavily is that the state cannot but be inhabited by caste — by its absent-presence and its brahmanical ideologies We need to remind ourselves that we have a modern state
