[rti4empowerment] My affidavit as regards change of caste



I, hitherto Amitabh Thakur s/o Sri Tapeshwar Narayan Thakur, r/o 5/426, Viram Khand, Gomti Nagar, Lucknow (presently SP, Economic offences Wing, Meerut), hereby solemnly affirm on oath-
1. That I was born on 16th June 1968 in Muzaffarpur, Bihar
2. That I was born in a Hindu "Bhumihar Brahman" family
3. That I was named "Amitabh Thakur" by my family members
4. That till now I have been known to the world around as "Amitabh Thakur" belonging to "Bhumihar Brahman" caste
5. That after a deep and prolonged thinking,  I have come to the conclusion that the Caste system in India is acting as a great burden for our socio-political system and the situation is deteriorating by every day
6. That I have a firm conviction that Caste system is one factor that adversely affects the progress of our Nation
7. That I feel that this caste system is playing a divisive role in our society and is often being used for justifying even unjustifiable stands and actions
8. That this has made me acknowledge that the time has come when we need to accept the teachings of people like Bhagwan Mahavir, Gautam Buddha, Sant Kabir Das and many other great persons of this soil belonging to the modern era as regards complete abolition of the Caste system
9.            That based on the abovementioned facts, the minimum that I think I need to do is to get rid of this Caste system
10.          That hence from today onwards, I shall be having no caste of mine
11.          That in all administrative, official and social documents, records and acceptances, wherever my caste is needed, it shall be deemed to be "No Caste" or "Casteless"
12.          That accordingly hereby  I also remove the "Thakur" surname attached to my name "Amitabh"
13.          That hence from today onwards, I shall be called only "Amitabh" instead of "Amitabh Thakur" in all  administrative, official and social documents, records and acceptances
14.          That I shall initiate the required and due processes for this once having made this Affidavit
15.          That I am taking this decision in all my senses and having thoroughly gone into the pros and cons of the action I am doing and its related consequences.
16.          That I am taking this decision only as regards me and it shall not have any effect on my wife Dr Nutan Thakur or my two children Tanaya Thakur or Aditya Thakur, who are free to choose their own course of action about this aspect

Hence, Help me God.
