Nikal Pado Re
Jal naa jaaye jal
Bahut Yaad Aate Ho Tum
Chanda Pe Dance
Ghar Yaad Aata Hai Mujhe
O Ri Chiraiya
Caste-based discrimination might appear to many as a done-to-death topic for discussion, but that doesn’t make discussing ‘untouchability’ a less important affair. It might be a hard to digest fact for urban Indians that the practice of untouchability is still prevalent in a nation that vies to become one of the global super-powers by the end of current decade.
As has been the norm over the last 9 episodes, the social media circuit was yet again buzzing with activity with some pretty insightful conversations happening around the show – especially Twitter. The hashtag that trended in India this week was #Dignity4All. Twitter users across the spectrum made no bones about freely expressing their views and opinion on caste discrimination and the ways and means to permanently eradicate the issue.
Here are some of the tweets that kept the conversation going and got the most traction from the Twitter folks.
