‘Secular’ means freedom to practice any religion. As per Article 25 of Indian Constitution, those who reside in India are free to follow any religion, subject to public order and morality. Also, Article 23 claims No Discrimination on basis of gender, caste or religion. That’s all ends with the last page of the constitution and our school Textbooks.
When reality hits you with a bomb, you no longer feel there isn’t discrimination. It feels like, you’re discriminated on daily basis. Just like you smoke, Only here you don’t want to.
Gender policing: In our day-to-day life, we do face discrimination. In my opinion Gender policing is too, a kind of discrimination.
Suggesting certain work to person cause they possess certain gender isn’t sound feasible Or blaming/forcing a particular gender, in general over a certain case such as Rape or Crying in public remains same.
Reservations: Why do we need it in every aspect, section & territory, for Vote politics. It was started on a different note and with the change of time the whole parameters, the dimensions have changed. Instead of making able human resources, reservations are making disabled human resources. Just to acknowledge, notwithstanding caste, a person who scores Better, is better in every aspect then a person who isn’t. Making able means providing basic education. it doesn’t mean liberation in the entrance test, Jobs and Promotions. Once they aren’t able to crack examination even after head-start. Either they aren’t into education or as per their eligibility they aren’t qualified enough. Even though, training them is the loss of resources for disabled human resources. Notwithstanding, I am in support of reservations but not the way it is executed or the parameters they are based on. India is in desperate need of strict Reservation framework rather than Vote politics and calling ‘Bharat Band’.
I agree that Ambedkar did what best for the nation at that time. But the time has changed. And change is universal. The reason we have the process of amending constitution.
Religion: Secular, free to follow any religion. Sounds good, right. But the reality is far more beyond. No Matter you follow what? , You are a majority of a minority, you’ll be criticized. but with a difference as per current Indian scenario, if you’re a minority. Media supports and if you’re a majority ‘saffron terrorism’.
Coming back to Vandalism
Vandalism of thoughts: Vandalism means, deliberate destruction to public or private property. Today thoughts are as vandalized as the statue of Lenin & Ambedkar, I.e. total annihilation by various Media groups.
Thoughts play an important part in society. It can decorate or deteriorate the society. In today’s scenario, thoughts are so vandalized they’re causing trouble in society and clashes among ourselves hence, Vandalizing democracy.
Instead of co- federalism we seek for self-growth, which is great but things don’t operate this way in the long run. Looking closely, we aren’t actually vandalizing the statue. We vandalized the aura of thought that statue possesses. The key here his discrimination on basis of caste. Cause we associate everything with caste and religion. Our sentiment is no better than soapstone.
India is a progressive country. But Elimination of castism couldn’t possible in a snap. And, ended fighting among ourselves could get us nowhere except decelerating the growth Progressive India
Settling down, Discrimination Starts with us. So do ends with us. No textbook, No constitution can change the thoughts that we possess and thought posses to Change The Society.
