explicit line contains a clear allusion to the Untouchable Penis: ‘Untouchable, I smell of dung // Just Untouchable,
but I’m well hung’ (Season 1, Epis 4, 2 Feb 1998). The line is followed by ribald loud Desi & British female laughter, indicating the acceptance of Shudra phallic magnitude by the audience & the persistence of deep-rooted beliefs of Dalit sexual mastery in diasporic South Asian communities.
2) Another example of Post-Independant India’s fascination with the Untouchable Penis is found in Khushwant Singh’s biographical ‘The Company of Women’. One part focuses on the Inter-Caste Sex of the protagonist Mohan Kumar with Dr. Sarojini Bharadwaj, a Lecturer in English in a college at Rewari. Just as Mohan Kumar’s surname implicitly indicates his membership of the Kumhara or Kumar potter sub-caste of Shudras, Prof. Sarojini Bharadwaj’s surname implicitly indicates her Aryan-Brahmin descent. The work reinforces traditional S Asian stereotypes regarding the small size of the Brahmin Vagina & large size of the Shudra Penis: “‘My God you are big!’ she exclaimed in alarm. ‘This thing will tear me to pieces.’ She clasped it between her thighs to prevent it piercing her. ‘Promise you won’t hurt me. Remember I’m very small & have had no sex for a very, very long time.'” (‘The Company of Women’ Khushwant Singh. N Delhi: Penguin Pub, 1999: 47-8).
