What I have personally observed these trends in higher amounts in teens as they are feeling the pressure of education and career and most of them have talked about reservation system as perhaps this could have the real boundary that has been permanently bracketed both societies.
Untouchability is a direct follow up of the caste system, which is the bedrock of Hindu religion. Right from the Gita to Gandhi have extolled the virtues of caste and untouchability will vanish only if the caste goes, but if it was not done in 4000 years , how will it ever go away ? perhaps never?
It is continuing and doing so still the mirage of trends of reservation continues, there is no way out even these teens grow older these are now implanted since their career stage,
There is a need for the UN to intervene like it did in the case of Apartheid in South Africa. But as India is the only Hindu country in world, the world is not bothered, but a reaction will be conversion and that is happening.
Well said. We boast a lot about Vedas where they are born which said, "Serving Humanity is higher than Divinity." And what we do in our day to day lives? Quite opposite. What a hypocrisy !!!
Without any intervention of UNO, if we stick to our ancient seers what they had been telling there can't be any noble deed than this. Demolish the heinous crimes of Untouchability at once.
I do not think UN intervention will going to solve this issue and why should it intervene in democracy, where as in SA it is oppression going on. I mentioned the reservations and deep rooted in society these issues would not be solved for sure as it continues to stay in limelight due to such issues.
It is only through education and enlightenment that we can bring in any social changes...There has been changes but not enough, goes to show that some very strict measures should be taken by the authorities against any caste based atrocities..
Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!
