Recently during a political campaign a blabbermouth cracked a remark, that somehow displayed the mindset of so many people all over the world, a mindset that I utterly detest.
He said that if a certain political leader married a scheduled caste or tribed girl he would have become the prime minister of India. Now, that leader often spends time in villages, sometimes with scheduled caste famillies, tells that it helps him to understand their problems.
So, that braggart wants to say that to prove that we dont believe in caste system we will have to marry outside our castes? So if someone believes in gay marriages, he or she will have to become one too? If someone believes in equality of all living beings he will have to marry a baboon to prove that? Simple showing them that respect, accepting them as they are is not enough? He will have to share his marital bed with that creature or being to prove he does not thinks them inferior? Very bizarre mindset for sure.
I personally believe that marriage is very special relationship and it should be done as per one’s own choice, no one has any rights to say a single word about it, not even the person one wants to marry, all that person can do is not agree- that’s all 🙂
Do you think that to show that you actually dont believe in racism, caste system etc. you will have to MARRY someone who does not belongs to your race or caste?
