Dalit-priestesses Breaking barriers: Two Dalit widow priestesses perform pooja at Kudroli! In a move to put an end to the practice of caste and gender inequality in temples. two Dalit widows are appointed priests at a temple in south-west India, in a rare move for a country where caste prejudice is still rife. This took place in Mangalore, Karnataka State, at Kudroli Gokarnanatheshwara temple, which has witnessed the onset of several new traditions.
Dalits, once known as ‘untouchables’ and ‘Harijans’, and still very widely discriminated against with extreme prejudice in most of India, are a so-called ‘scheduled caste’. That women, which gender suffers huge inequalities in India, take on what is traditionally an entirely male preserve is also progressive. Further, widows were until recently universally treated by most of Indian society as virtual non-persons who had to drag out their lives in penurious and hopeless conditions.

While India already has far too many priests, gurus, countless wandering sadhus and ‘holy men and women’ – it is at least positive that this position is no longer the total preserve of males or higher castes.
