Come On Lets Differentiate

Caste, Race, Tribes, Professionals, we have ever so many ways to segregate people. At the end of the day, we can divide the world into two-the ones who divide and the others who don't. A lot can be learnt from the game of chess... at the end of the game, the king and the pawn, the bishop and the knight, the queen and the rook, black and white-all go into the same box...
Some people feel too great when in those armchairs of power; I pity them as I wonder, "How useless and loose their arms might hang when that chair is removed?" Then, when they witness that they were never respected in the first place, will they ask then, "What did I do to deserve this?!" Would I be able to remind them then that it was not power that they controlled but power that controlled them. 
Trust me, today I stand as witness to understand that power can corrupt the soul of even the good ones. Are they "good" from then? 
I wondered, "If God decends today, and tried to fit into an organization, which would he choose? what title will he be offered? and what would his pay scale be?" I really don't know about the first few questions, but take my word, if he settles in for an "Indian" pay scale and thinks that his opinions will count, he will soon figure out that he is disappointed... but I wish that by then he would have a family and two kids too and know what... he might allow himself to be violated and may not even complain too. 
This world has blessfully advanced so much that our visions blind our missions and our egos block our passions and each one is running towards something, so convinced that what he does is a means to the end. And I remembered the words of George Washington Carver, "How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these." Ces't la vie...

My Misadventure With Truth

Today my country celebrates its Republic Day, the day it brought forth one of the longest constitution drafted within three years since its independance into effect in one of the world's largest democracy. My friends, those poor natives a.k.a "our grave internal threats" who are getting killed for trying to preserve their land, territory and resources would regard this day as the day a plan was laid to curtail their freedom-in pretext of providing welfare through compulsive reforms, the day when their pride and age-old tradition, culture and wisdom were snatched, hatched, boxed and despatched to fit into blueprints drawn to make them nothing more than exhibits in our historical archives. They have not succeeded still (thank goodness!) yet they haven't tried to stop trying too. Duh!
Have some of the neo-modern slaves gained freedom by gaining their monetary benfits by selling their dignity, time, families and self? Have corporate slaves who work for their needs within those COBs in well strategized segregations (usually based on race) that the segregator (usually the one who is trusted with running the organization) feels others are too stupid to notice-really not notice? Has slavery really ended when our fundamental rights are snatched in the name of some new-found policies that we are made to follow "obligatorily"? If not, your slavehood is lost.
Today, if you raise your voice against these practises, those 'holier than thou art' humans who indulge in it, would call you "violent," "need tuning" and sit you quietly to "observe" what they do which they think is the best. This is neither the best nor is it sustainable as there is fault in their thought; the thought that they think that there is nothing beyond their race or their learning that they can see in others. This limitation is their downfall. And this downfall inevitable if this scenario persists. Till then what is the point in a constitution, policies, rights, freedom and liberty? Just a mockery of international injustice and missions right at your face... hahaha! Atleast I can laugh thinking of those who think that I was born yesterday or can I?
