For 400 years Dalits have not been allowed into a temple in Orissa's Kendrapara district, despite caste not being an issue at the famous Jagannath temple at Puri. Last year four Dalit girls who defied the ban were humiliated and fined. But now the Dalits, emboldened by the support from outside, have decided to force their entry on November 19 come what may.
