FB Discussions - Brahmin bashing and cabbages ...
I wish the brahmin bashing would end. The reality gets lost when everything is called a brahminical ploy.
There is an SC community and a non SC community. The non SC are made of different community groupings, and they pull along among themselves. The Reddys feel richer, the Naidus feel wiser, the Brahmins feel holier. Each feels most superior to the other. The SC community is deeply violated, and every non SC community is equally implicated. And the matter begins and ends there.
At least among the Tamil brahmins, my own community which I know of closely, many have packed up and left for the land of greenbucks, USofA. I think its pointless bashing them any more, as they are not there at all ! The few who are poor temple priests are also not capable of exploiting much today !
