P Sainath on Rohith Vemula’s suicide

They say Rohith’s suicide is a depression suicide, it has nothing to do with discrimination and all the things you are talking about. One question is, why are some classes and castes in society more depressed than everyone else? But, there is a more cruel and venomous insinuation in this: This is not emotional depression, they are treating it as a mental health issue… this is inborn.
