First things first … CASTE = a social barrier that I would love to call CRAP
I agree that lots of folks out there would completely go with me on this statement.But the irony lies in the fact that their so called modern outlook is only ostensible.Well! At least as far as a major chunk of the population is concerned.
Several Indians are obsessed with this caste thing, though their levels of obsession vary.Perhaps its a narcissistic feeling wrt the so called superiority of their caste.Or maybe fear of being labelled a "caste-traitor"
Some Mr.Arbid might be bold (and stupid) enough to promulgate his caste feelings in open.He openly throwns abusive verbiage at fundas like "inter-caste courtship" and supports things like "wanted! gf ! Must be from same caste!"
"The world then crucifies him and calls him "Voooru naaayalu" .Go ahead! Screw him and mutilate him.I am with you!But I make a humble plea to do it only if you are devoid of any caste feelings (n that includes internally as well)
The reservations-related exampli gratia :
As far as the reservations issue in our country is concerned,recently a school pal went like
"Why caste-reservations at all ?? If they are lazy ,they dont study they deserve seats in premier institutes,dont they ? While FCs like me who work their testicular potitude off have to bear the brunt of suchnegative phenomena"
The usage of the word "they" refers to SCs/STs/OBCs.Yes the first question raised by this pal of mine is most appropriate.But the way he put down the reason basically repudiates the validity of his argument. Does it mean that "they" are scoundrels (read "pokiri") who rely on reservations only.What crap!:( I know of innumerable candidates who are an infinite times better than this friend of mine.
Okay, guess lots of stuff is already available in the blogging world on reservations.So I will shift to a different gear. But yes! Urs truly not supporting or opposing reservations.Only laying it down that the above given justification is hmm ..politically incorrect 🙂
The Parent trap :
A IIITian gentleman's parents came sometime ago to apna campus.They saw this classmate of their ward and liked that classmate (its a girl … I dont think Indian parents became modern enough to check out the prospects of gay marriages 😀 )
They were happy and the mother was talking something like : "Emandi ! (non telugu pals,read "Aji suniye!) NIce girl na? I know their parents .They are from our caste only.Lets marry them off in future." and then the annoyingly cliche' "chilaka gorinkala laaga untaru ! " 😉
Nothing against anybody's parents.But lady!If u ask for my irrelevant-here advice I wud say … "Shut ur mouth and start searching for a well 'coz no matter what ur caste is , U are pathetic " :X
The above case might seem to be out-of-place ,but thats how things in India are.I regret to say this is the case more in the south.Hell lot in A.P.
Why? a good pal (not the fellow mentioned supra,in this case a IIITian pal) strongly feels that even our beloved Zulu is prone to such caste feelings.He says that the former behaves that way because his is the best caste in whole of A.P.Thats why the small-look (chinna choopu) towards good ol' Andhra boys.
I am scared that everyone has some sort of affinity towards their respective castes.As a right that promulgates their freedom to practice thier own customs?Yes.But as a "Mine is better" or "Mine deserves reservation" or "..social relations only within my caste" kind of crap ? Go jump from the top of Babu Khan towers. 😉
Things are not going to change unless we change our outlook towards society.
ps : Running in the morning is really good for health. 😉
ps1 : Should convince Lord Lukog to take a room in my wing.
ps2 : Do pro assassins really exist ?
ps3 : One of the SRK-in-darr characters bolted my door a few days ago from outside. (Methinks it was one of them.Who else would want to do soemthing like that ? )
ps4 : PS-style rocks.Those who use it love it.Those who dont also find it quite amusing.If some specimen think otherwise and want to glorify their opinion , they can join the caste-maniac on top of Babu khan towers.
