The brahmin who flies into a rage at
the touch of a mahar
‐ That's no brahmin.
The only absolution for such a
brahmin
Is to die for his own sin.

He who refuses to touch a chandal
Has a polluted mind.

Says, Tuka, a man is only as chaste
As his own belief.


Says Tuka...
Selected Poetry of Tukaram.
Translated from the Marathi with an
Introduction by Dilip Chitre.
Penguin 1991. p. 11
