About this blog

A blog seems like a nice and happy way to put your points across. As a researcher, I feel that there are lots of grey areas that researchers happily look away from. As a public health doctor, I feel concerned about larger issues that impact on the narrow world of research. Research sometimes can be an escape – from human rights issues, from issues that stem from societal determinations. One must at the least document these concerns.So like I said, a blog is a nice way to do so. And, no, I dont want a savarna author to write my foreword and definitely No, I dont want a savarna publication printing my stuff for profit. Long live free speech.!!



  1. I don’t drop a bunch of responses, but I browsed a few of the responses on About this blog | Dr. Sylvia Karpagam. I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list of all of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?


  2. Oh God. You took the comment above to be serious! That is a spam comment from some marketing guy pasting generic things in all blogs. And nice work pasting a link to YOUR blog, on YOUR blog. Very funny this is.


  3. dear Dr Karpagam,
    I have been following your blogs closely.I like what you write becos you bring up salient points but at the same time I cant help noticing deep seated hatred in some of your posts.
    I feel a person can uplift his/her self and community without the need for hatred for anyone else.

    By hating a savarna or anyone else for the matter that does not improve any situation and that only brings pride and prejudice.

    Dalits by nature are people who are loving. This is one asset that other communities totally lack. I am not saying that Dalits should not stand up for their rights..they should stand up for their basic rights but do not let hatred ruin their minds.

    I hope to read more of your work with love as the under current and not hatred.


  4. “”Dalits by nature are people who are loving. This is one asset that other communities totally lack.” I donot agree to this. A coommunity which was oppressed for centuries do have every right to be angry. I feel English education is the key to the liberation and they should not fall for the love for mother tongue liche.

  5. Am really appalled at the sort of thought process that’s going on! Instead of cooling off we are preaching hate! What happened in the past was the simple case if ‘Might is Right’…. Be it caste system, forcible conversions etc., but now that most of us who are educated need to align themselves to the changing times of Equality! I know of many of my deserving friends from Reserved Categories not getting admissions or being selected bcoz the Creamy Layer among them has monopolised this area and made it their domain. The deserving Reserved/Backward Categories among them continue to suffer!
