Dhakto munis

"Hanv dhakto munis," the father of a Salesian once said to me. Dhakto munis - an interesting variant on "bahujan" - the "majority people" - which is also now much in use, in contrast to "mahajan" - the "big people." It might be the "basso popolo" in Italian. And of course the traditional "kulachari" which is simply "servant" - shudra.
