Colour Blind...

Taking offence in India & our need to choose a side

 

Have we grown to become a society that is colour blind or have we got used to painting with borrowed colours?

 

The reason I ask this is because from the time a child is born we start to paint a picture of epic failures for those innocent beings and this sets the tone for them to paint their own portraits in the future.

 

With birth comes the distinction of blue for boys and pink for girls; dividing the nation into gender…

 

As they grow older they get into the more complex design of symbols; dividing them further into cast and tribes…

 

By the time they are at a turning point to make an impression on society we break them further on the basis of educational scores, confusing it as a measure for knowledge…

 

Then comes the phase when the right to vote is upon those individuals but unfortunately the onslaught of external programming from society has done it’s magic and we have a generation that believes in extremism instead of progression…

 

At the end of it all we are left with individuals trained into becoming puppets strung to society and each section now with their own misconception of believing this to be a group…

 

I wonder where we went so wrong that we lost an identity as a nation only to propagate our own agenda, because today the Safron, White and Green is left without the blue wheel that once symbolised unity of states to be called India and all we have left are people trying to add a spoke to that wheel…

 

Before man, woman, child, cast, creed, religion and agenda we were once born Indians; only to have diversified with time…

 

The celebrations of patriotism has become a fashion statement with cheers of “One Day Maataram” and our identities scattered by state…

 

But I strongly believe that all is not lost, because we still hold the paint brush to paint our future and only we the people decided what our canvas should look like…

 

I am proud to be an Indian before anything else that society has conditioned me to believe; because being Indian is not a privilege of birth but a commitment of choice that follows it…

 

JAI HIND!!!
