Dalits organize Maha Yagna in Kathmandu, Nepal for the first time!

The Nepal National Dalit Social Welfare Organisation has organised a week-long Shrimad Bhagawat Saptaha Gyan Mahayagya at the Khulla Manch, Kathmandu from today. This Yagya was inaugrated by President Ram Baran Yadav. The Mahayagya is aimed at collecting donations to provide scholarships and establish a hostel for needy Dalit students from remote areas who want to pursue higher education in the Capital. Well-known preacher and social activist Pandit Dinbandhu Pokhrel will be reciting from the Purans throughout the week. The Mahayagya organised by the Dalit community, which is treated as untouchable even today, is said to be the first of its kind. It is a social move to impart right to equality to the Dalits who had never performed such holy practice. This is a first step in the right direction. So Nice One Nepal!
