Anti-Caste activist and founder of Shankar Social Justice Trust Kausalya remarried a ‘Parrai’ player Sakthi who runs Nimirvu band.
The self-respect marriage, one which is not officiated by a Brahmin priest or any religious customs, of the couple Kausalya and Shakthi took place at the Thanthai Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam office, Gandhipuram, Coimbatore, around 10 a.m. in the presence of her late husband Shankar’s father, brother and grandmother.
She became a crusader against caste killings after her late husband, Shankar, was hacked to death in a busy market area in Udumalaipet in Tirupur district by men hired by her own family on March 13, 2016.
Kausalya, who belongs to one of the socially affluent castes, had married Shankar, a Dalit youth of Udumalpet in Tirupur district, in 2015. On March 13, 2016, the couple was brutally attacked near Udumalpet town bus stand. Shankar, only 22 at the time, succumbed to his injuries while 19-year-old Kausalya survived.
She testified against her father at court for killing her husband brutally in the name of caste. On December 12 2017, Thirupur court convicted her father Chinnasamy and sentenced capital punishment for masterminding the attack against the couple.
Sakthi an MBA graduate from Vellalore has been teaching ‘Parrai’ for 8 years has trained Kausalya too. Kausalya has been training children at Shankar’s village.
