P.Sivakami an I.A.S officer, of 1980 batch from Tamil Nadu, chose a deliberate exit from significant post mainly to fight atrocities towards Dalits. She joined Bahujan Samaj Party, and contested 2009 parliamentary election and unfortunately she was not able to win the race. Later she has organised party “Samuga Samatuva Padai Party”, and she steers it to a greater success.
Sivakami held responsible posts, including as collector in Thoothukudi district.
As a steadfast bureaucrat, she served as special commissioner and commissioner,
directorate of Stationary and Printing for Tamil Nadu Government and
she opted voluntary retirement on November 23,2008 is now making brilliant history.

One could comprehend her attempt Sivakami as champion of oppressed and
depressed group and this is what she envisages that our nation should be.
Although wiping off the tears and woes the Dalits, Sivakami is optimistic
to win the goal, and she has seen in her own experience as an upright officer a
situations where upper class bureaucracy has denied the fitting post to Dalits
, for the simple reason that they are Dalits a wrongly conceived concept.
It is no denial in politics, media, judiciary, and in executives
upper class is dominating entire system of our country.
This, she feels that there should be an end to such socially diseased
class conscious system.
All we know about Dalits ostracized as untouchable no matter
they are living from urban or from rural area.
A kind of discrimination is being menaced everywhere as casteism,
what we hear as two tumbler formula in
Tamil Nadu, a raised wall in cemetery dividing one
for upper caste, the other for untouchable are all
well familiar news.
But Sivakami has more to tell about the atrocities meted to Dalits and she wonders
as we all know how long such tragic situation of unemancipated racism, schaunism,
and nepotism one could be bear with. The greatness of Sivakami is her writing skill that
would expose the Dalit woes, key issues, it’s her greatness that she sacrifices time
in travel and meeting people of different parts of India only to disseminate her mission
of rights of feminism, and to tell all how atrocities against Dalits could be rooted out.
