The Caste And Abuse

Casting aspersion on caste
is like digging one’s own Grave

For we know not why we have come
but we know for sure where we are destined to Go

When the coffin doesn’t differentiate who you are
Why do you differentiate between you and he

You think you are superior to him in stature and size
but the coffin has the same size for you and him

While You will carry tons of sins for ‘castering’ him
he will carry loads of sympathy for taking abuses from you

The one who is wronged will surely rest in peace
While the one who has wronged will not have rest even in peace

It is a pity that even in this age of enlightenment, and technological brilliance our thoughts and poetry still has to address this evil, which is the bane of a society. Some day we will break through this dark cover of caste clouds.

In one country it is caste, in another it is class but the meaning is the same and the feelings are the same. And are we not all a little guilty of this. No matter what your caste/ class there is always someone to look down on.
I love the equaling in this poem, the coffin is the same for everyone. Very well said.
