  1. Dear Sir/Madam,
    Please give the fellowship to Dalits only. If given to non dalit then the research will definitely be biased. We Dalits have suffered due to discriminatory politics of non-dalits.

    Dear Madam/Sir

    I would agree what Sunil says as it is not only for giving priority to Dalit women but it would be a committed task if a Dalit is involved in this task. For a non Dalit it is yet another acadamic study but for a dalit it is an opportunity to voice out the 3000 years of struggle thru the out come of the study. So please give priority to Dalit women.
