One who practices caste is a devil

That devil has to be driven out of India

India must be made a country of equality.

The tiller must sow the letters of English

Our soil must become a global knowledge power

Caste has cultivated mindlessness

The anti-caste pen will have to change India.

Nationalism is not casteism

Caste and race were born twins.

We lost the battles of bows and arrows

We lost the battles of guns

Now it is time for battles with pens.

Phule Ambedkar were first pen warriors

Walking ahead of us with books that lead us

They learned English to defeat Sanskrit,

They are not dead but alive in letter and spirit.

Let us create an anti-caste pen force in every house

Let us make every village a pen force.

Let us liberate India from casteism and Brahminism
