Many years ago, I read a story about a man in India who’d raped an Untouchable girl. The girl was young, maybe 8 or 9. She was scared. The man confessed to raping her. When asked about it, he admitted he’d seen how terrified she was. But he didn’t care. Because he she didn’t matter.

She was an Untouchable after all. They’re not really human, are they?
