    I really like the first stanza even though it has a rhyme. I am not the biggest fan of rhyming; but you made it work in this first stanza :) Maybe in second one put make (a) sincere offer?

    The entire piece reminds me of being in love and knowing YOU will always be there for that person but they are in this case just not able to share that level of love you have for them.

    Reminds me of the first time I fell in love and life slowly putting me through many painful years and tears; nights up drinking far too much and writing about the pain of why would this person not see how deeply I cared for them.

    Thank you for sharing :)

    prejudice will always be a part of any society as long as people live. there will always be hate and jealousy and racism and there will always be love and joy and acceptance. it is all a part of being human.

    Dalit is a designation for a group of people traditionally regarded as untouchable.[6] Dalits are a mixed population, consisting of numerous social groups from all over India; they speak a variety of languages and practice a multitude of religions. There are many different names proposed for defining this group of people, including Panchamas (fifth varna) , and Asprushya (untouchables) .[citation needed]

    In 2011, the proportion of Dalit population was 24.4 percent of India's total population.[7] The Dalit population is broadly distributed across Indian states and districts. In 2011, the state of Punjab had the highest proportion of its population as Dalit, at about 31.9 percent, [8] and the state of Mizoram had the lowest at nearly zero. The government of India recognises and protects them as Scheduled Castes(SC) and Scheduled Tribes(ST) . The term Dalit has been interchangeably used with term Scheduled Castes, and Scheduled Tribes these terms include all historically discriminated communities of India out-caste and Untouchables. To prevent untouchable act and other criminal acts on Scheduled Castes(SC) and Scheduled Tribes(ST) Indian government commenced Prevention of Atrocity(POA) act on 31 March 1995[9][10]

    While discrimination based on caste has been prohibited and untouchability abolished under the Constitution of India, [11] discrimination and prejudice against Dalits in South Asia remains.[12][13][14] Since its independence in 1947, India has implemented an affirmative policy of reservation, the scope of which was further expanded in 1974, to set aside and provide jobs and education opportunities to Dalits.[15] By 1995, of all jobs in India,17.2 percent of the jobs were held by Dalits, greater than their proportion in Indian population.[16] In 1997, India democratically elected K. R. Narayanan, a Dalit, as the nation's President. Many social organisations too have proactively promoted better conditions for Dalits through improved education, health and employment.

    Dalits and similar groups are found in India, Nepal, Pakistan, [17] Sri Lanka[citation needed] and Bangladesh. Further wherever immigrants from these countries have left, caste has gone with them. As a result Dalits can also be found in the U.S., U.K, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, and the Caribbean.[18][19][20]

    In addition, the Burakumin in Japan, Cagots and Roma in Europe, Al-Akhdam in Yemen, [21] and the Baekjeong in Korea are or were excluded from the surrounding community in much the same manner as the Dalit.[citation needed] In fact, a 2012 paper[22] argued that the European Romas' DNA matches the Dalit in India.

    this comment was made in haste
    it's still going on

    there are those that still dream
    all over the world

    It reminds me of the pygmies (bush people)
    of central Africa who are excluded

    I like the subject matter because its very relevant to our world today and it really conveys the feeling of hopeful idealism in the way societies deal with problems. Nice structure.

    I felt the author was being very upfront with his feelings towards life and he made me feel what he feels.

    Fair praise...

    Expressed from deep within the heart by Hasmukh Mehta Sir….there is one and only one love that stands on a pedestal that rests on the foundation of Greatness, Goodness and Godliness. As beautifully expressed in these lines of ode for motherly love, that captures the ever loving heart of a mother, respect, charm, innocence, and a queen like identity that can be treated as an idol of the highest level in human relationships, that of a mother and child.

    Fair praise

    What is it to be called?
    I was stone walled
    She stood for natural beauty
    As if in spare time created by...........
