One year on, riot-hit Bhima Koregaon remains peaceful, but undertone of caste tensions prevail in the village

Every year, on 1 January, lakhs of Dalits across Maharashtra gather at the war memorial of Bhima Koregaon, 40 kilometres from Pune. It commemorates the historic victory of the British Army, which had a significant Dalit contingent, over the Peshwas.
