I have started writing this blog without giving any title to it. I think I am gonna give it one, once I have finished penning down my thoughts. Coz at this moment, I am myself confused. Everything around seems to be going wrong. People are running behind issues and things which actually do not effect them in their day-to-day life. Religion, caste, gender, country and much more. Every time, I see that animal instinct among humans all that I have in my mind is “why???”.
Every human, trying to over-power those who are in minority. Dividing the socitietes in innumerable fractions on basis of any “X” reason; you name it, we have it.
Belonging to a typical Brahmin Family (considered to be superior than the other castes), I never understood this concept of caste all-together. First of all I don’t understand till-date, that why am I superior to others. What have I done to have this privilege???
Now just imagine a situation. I meet a person, talk to him, go out, have lunch, fool around, EVERYTHING like normal humans do. But the moment I get to know that he/she is of a “so-called” lower caste or “GOD-FORGIVE” form a different religion, I should scare him/her off with an offending glare. All the happiness of togetherness , brotherhood should fade away. From that moment on, I should not by any chance, share food or water with him, and sharing his food would be the biggest sin that I can commit !!!
“I am not gonna take it“, something I thought when I was a kid. Even at a young age of 5-6, I knew that this whole concept is nothing but a stupidity. Having beliefs is good, but challenging others on their beliefs, offending them, looking down on them is something I never understood. Moreover, this is not even about belief, it’s just about ur “mother’s womb”. The person carrying you within her for 9 long months. Just the caste of that person defines ur identity or even more, the caste of the MAN, whose DNA you carry within urself, defines it. I mean why it can’t be like just me, the person who was born? Why am I imposed with the beliefs of my forefathers?
Why can’t I experience and learn ? Why is it that the day I am born, I am told that I am a proud child of a ‘Brahmin’ family ? Why can I not be, simply the ‘child of my beloved parents’? Why can’t I just be a “RATIONAL BEING” ?????
