    Abstract: Caste oppression is one of the biggest evils in Indian society. With the advent of digital media, there has been an increase in people engaging in caste discourse.

Dalits were not discussed in popular blog posts. The plight of the Dalits was brought to the world's attention by writers like Meena Kandasamy, Yashica Dutt, and Suraj Yengde. Movements like Dalit Lives Matter were sparked by the medias Black Lives Matter influence. This article aims to show how Dalits have gained a voice through internet caste discourse.
