Treasure Island

Queeny Gona

(16th august,1987 / KANIGIRI)

The Untouchables!


We call ourselves; the 21st centurions,
Civilized and many more…
In reality, our thoughts
Still sticked to uncivilized era.
The so called civilians,
Carrying the ideas of untouchability;
Are the pillars of the society?
Pathetic! Would be the scenario.
Two decades of education,
Fails to eradicate the thoughts of untouchability…
What would come; in rescue of cleansing the minds of real untouchables,
Will ever social justice be possible?

    A human who cannot respect a fellow human and his rights loses his right to be called a human

    One with such a thought is one who fails to walk with time. We live in an age, civilised for that matter, where the thought of a caste system is not entertained, and is inappropriate for any mind to be acquainted with it. Among my ethnic group, the Igbo, there are some communities which still practice a caste system known as Osu today. An interesting writing. (Report) Reply

    Queeny
    Great one
    You have taken a great subject to narrate a poem
    You are correct, still there is, but few.
    Good work

    no one should be blamed for not giving sympathy. they are educated and have access to everything. untouchable will be touchable ony through education. the great leader dr. ambedkar, s main idea was this. well brought out.posted10
