Sunita Devi, a Dalit woman who was hired to be a school cook in Sukhidhang government inter college (Secondary school), was fired after students refused to eat her food. Devi supposedly had no issues on her first day. The day after, however, 44 out of the 60 students, with support from their parents, refused to eat the school food and began bringing food from home.
Devi was hired in early December. The temporary position only paid Rs. 3000 ($40.23 USD) a month.
