Is every human equal here? Who am I? Who are you? Of all the regions of India, Kerala (Southern India) had and have the most rigid and elaborate caste structure. During my trip to Kerala, I visited Parasinikadavu Muthappan temple in Kannur. Irrespective of caste, creed or religion, everyone is welcomed there, which was once (and still, in rural areas) restricted in the name of Untouchability (a practice of imposing social limitations on particular castes). In a society where discrimination and violence against the marginalised are viewed as normal, Parasinikadavu Temple goes against the ''traditions'' and the ''culture'', as a thriving testimony of secular harmony, which I consider as a form of Redemption of hope and belief.
