Ninth grader Sakshat raps against caste-based discrimination

KATHMANDU: A 14-year-old boy has used rap music as the tool to raise a voice against the existing practice of untouchability that denies Dalit people social equality.

Sakshat Pant, a ninth grader of Gyanodaya Bal Batika School, today released his first rap video titled ‘Tara Ma Dalit’. The rap song is an imagination of the cruelty by so-called "upper caste" people against a Dalit boy and conveys strongly that the lives of Dalits matter.
