Chaos. There are people who spend 500 crores on a marriage. And there are people who kill themselves since they have no means for the next meal. There are women who are fortunate enough to go all the way to the U.S to pursue their masters and there are women who had to drop out of school because they were women. Women who have the freedom to practise their free will and marry a man of their choice and women who get gang-raped and killed for wanting to marry a man of their choice. Children who excel in all spheres of academy and children who ponder over why they must. Children who get to treat their friends to a good lunch in a nice restaurant and children who clean tables at the same restaurant. The educated elite of the society that talks equality in public and yet assigns a separate plate, for the domestic helper in the house, to eat from. A society that says casteism must be abolished in the country and yet each household discourages inter caste marriages and supports their children in their views of reservation, whatever it may be.
A nation that has been slashed into a million fragments in the name of caste, religion, language and state and yet brags of “unity in diversity” in its text books. A people who take pride in belonging to their states to the extent that they make fun of and look down upon other states and yet claim they are proud to be an Indian when in reality they don’t even bother to educate themselves about India. A people for whom this democracy was meant and yet not a single soul has the maturity or responsibility to live or deal in a democracy. They don’t even try to inculcate the spirit of democracy.
Governments come. governments go. Just as the people come and go. Not one of them has bothered to give the people what they truly deserve – hope and faith without conditions.
But when I question all of this, they brand me to be a fanatic, a communist, a disrupter of peace and harmony.
They dont understand that the devil of chaos that they have provoked, is disturbing my sleep. I cant sleep. that’s why I asked the devil to stop. But the devil says that I am the devil, to shut me up.
Chaos. When will the noise stop?
