A house divided: One Dalit Christian pastor’s family has diverging views on “reservations”
The Rev. John Yesunatha Das, a Pentecostal Pastor, calls himself "buffalo color"—black. Though his wife is Brahmin, their daughter Feba inherited his dark skin, a visible sign that he's a Dalit, or untouchable.
As a product of a mixed-caste marriage, Feba doesn't have a caste, but when the second-year honors history major started university, most the girls didn't speak to her because of the color of her skin.
