Several Dalit families are being treated as outcastes and are being boycotted by upper castes at Tarapuram village of Bobbili mandal in Vizianagaram district. During the last Rama Navami celebrations, the upper caste people were served lunch in steel plates and steel glasses, whereas the Dalits were served in leaf plates and plastic glasses. There are only two water taps in the village which have also gone dry, they said. The Dalits have been deprived of their jobs and are now hungry.
