Dear society, at the very onset I am earnestly grateful for the norms and values accommodated by you which has been serving us since a long time by maintaining cordial domestication. The criterion provided by you differentiates us from other animals and today we proudly call ourselves as “HUMANS”, the strongest and smartest of all animals.

It has been a long rather very long journey and you have elevated yourselves a good way towards development from the days of gender selection to educating girls and nurturing their dreams, from the era of untouchability to concepts like unity of humanity and mankind. But yet an extensive progression is untouched. Your history is marked with ample breakthroughs, but, yet your conviction plays an ambiguous part when dealt with caste or religion conjoined by wedlock (yes I’m talking about inter-caste and inter-religious marriages). You are still substantially weak when your performance demands religious concern. Is it because of your deep spiritual belief in divinity? Or your acute craving to clench your own religion? Howsoever the argument may go on, the fact  is that today’s youth does not entertain your communal differentiation.

I know you are uphilling backbreaking battles to unite your own communion, but the bitter truth is that these conflicts wont bring forth harmony to your own race. You are unaware of the reality that your conduct is not strengthening the bond of your sect but weakening it on the contrary. Today, much of the heads visualizes it to be more prominent to escape from your spiritual clutch rather than being a victim of your dogmatic disclosure that can knock them off any minute.

Yes, we are obviously grateful that you let us educate ourselves which further enlightened our notions. And these enrichment does not allow us to support your unreasonable cause. We wont let you lead us through your absurd intellect, and will definitely fight the smallest unchaste grain that concretizes you.

Some of your legendary conduct baffles my mind concerning your true motive. You murdered every soul who attempted to unite the divergent caste and religion through marriage because from your vision that harms your social and spiritual honor and integrity. Manoj-Babli’s famous honor killing case followed by Nitish Katara’s ruthless killing, Bhavna Yadav’s savage death and many more. The list of shame is too long to be included in one piece. Much of our fellow brothers and sisters killed themselves out of contravention victimized by your resentment. But dear society, how will you define honor in killing? Its rather a disgrace that you mutilated your children who tried to unite the world with the bond of love. Thence you might have realized that its beyond the bounds of possibility to rip out love among divergent caste and creed, so its better that you slightly loosen your grip over your religiosity and let the youth bind the world with the magic of love and make the world a better place to live in, free from coercion and bloodshed. It is distinct from your every bewildering action that a peaceful world is not possible under your irrational statute. I am only a small fragment of the huge quantum that embodies you, I am a crystal glass who can show you the reality behind your back but to internalize the change completely depends on your wish and all the power whatsoever bestowes in you. However demands by circumstances are fulfilled by grabbing the rights at the right time.
