Gujarat schoolkids refuse to eat food cooked by Dalit woman



Representational image

With India all set to celebrate its 75 years of freedom on August 15, there are parts of the country where narrowmindedness and bigotry flourish without stop. Here’s one case from Gujarat. An incident of caste discrimination has been reported from the state’s Morbi district where school kids have refused to eat their mid-meals because it was cooked by a Dalit woman.

A Times of India report said that since June 16, as many as 147 school kids from OBC communities are not sitting to eat food, which was being served to them under the state government’s mid-day meal programme at Shri Sokhda Primary School at Sokhda village in Morbi’s district.

The sudden change in the kids’ behaviour comes after their parents got to know that a Dalit woman had been entrusted the task of cooking mid-day meals at the school. They do not want their children to eat the food cooked by the woman who is lower than them in the caste order.

When the incident came to the limelight and questions were raised regarding the same, the school authority and district police reacted and revealed that mid-day meal maker Dhara Makwana has been awarded the contract to make the daily meals for the student, but when their parents got to know about her caste, they asked their children to not eat it.

Speaking to the media, Makwana’s husband said that when they witnessed that the student are not sitting for their food, he tried to know the reason by asking their parents. He was told by a few parents that they could not allow their children to eat food cooked by a Dalit woman.

Her husband also filed a complaint about the same in the local police station, which was transferred to the Deputy Superintendent of Police. The police told him that they can’t do anything about it because it was an issue related to school and district administration and they can’t interfere.

District primary education officer Bharat Virja said he was not familiar with the matter and he will look into it. With less than a fortnight left for August 15, it is indeed disheartening that caste still continues to stalk a vibrant India’s progress.

Koffee With Karan S7: Karan Johar brings out the Punjabi actor from Sidharth Malhotra and Vicky Kaushal

Koffee With Karan Season 7 episode 7 which will release this Thursday, on August 18, 2022 on Disney+Hotstar.



Karan Johar has shared the latest trailer of Koffee With Karan season 7 episode 7. The new episode features two Punjabi Bollywood actors, recently wed Vicky Kaushal and Shershaah famed Sidharth Malhotra.

Karan Johar introduced both the actors as ‘men of the moment’ and the episode definitely looks fun and worth watching. The few seconds trailer shows Karan discussing Katrina Vicky’s marriage to Sidharth and Kiara Advani’s future wedding.

What also grabbed some eyeballs was Sidharth claiming to manifest his wedding with Kiara without taking her name. If the reader remembers correctly, you must have heard this word during Ranbir-Alia wedding, when headlines stated that the Raazi actor manifested her wedding with Ranbir Kapoor.

The latest Koffee With Karan Season 7 trailer also shows Vicky pretending to swoon on the couch and recreating the scene when he was last on the same couch and told that Katrina said she ‘might look good opposite Vicky Kaushal’, to which Sidharth Malhotra jokingly says, “Iska toh roka hua tha yahan pe.”

The episode will also bring out the Punjabiness from both the actors. Karan Johar has had a special Punjabi game between the two, where they’ll have to come up with English words but in Punjabi accent. And it seems like both, Vicky and Sidharth are nailing the contest.

During the rapid-fire round, Vicky Kaushal was asked what he misses about single life. To which the Masaan actor was quick to reply, “The ‘Miss’ is now Mrs.” Later the segment also shows Karan Johar reading out thirsty messages from fans and the reaction from Sidharth Malhotra and Vicky Kaushal are worth watching the Koffee With Karan Season 7 episode 7 which will release this Thursday, on August 18, 2022. The Latest season of KWK is exclusively available only on Disney+Hotstar.
