Solution

The correct option is A Chokhamela
Chokhamela came from an untouchable caste called Mahar. Mahars weren’t even allowed to live with the rest of society at that time. They were supposed to live outside the town because they were deemed untouchable. But Chokhamela still wanted to be a devotee of god Vitthala.
