Atrocities seem to be endless.  A Maratha girl and a Matang (dalit) boy from Mulgaon in Patan taluka of Satara District, Maharashtra ran away together.  Out of caste revenge, the boy’s mother was stripped and beaten badly

Her home village is Wategaon, home of the famous poet, writer and singer Annabhau Sathe.

This only heightens the evil.  Caste itself is an evil; its ramifications are endless —  and women suffer the worst.
