Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Cast’e’ Away.

The caste divide has become bane of Hinduism and India. the only gainers from this whole perverted scheme of things seem to be either the  Upper Caste land lords  and the politicians of the lower caste.  Akin to cancer the only cure for it is to kill it in its roots and not leave even a trace of it.

What probably started as a noble cause to delegate work among themselves, our ancestors turned it into a 4 headed monster. A monster that has 4 heads, but for sure no brain. Just like the ones who propogate it!! Yes I did say that.
How else will you describe a social set up that makes a life pure/impure from birth!! A baby born in this world is probably the most purest thing, be it a brahmana or a shudra. How will you explain the fact that a precious life form becomes untouchable as soon as it makes its way into the world.

By definition, a brahmana is one who understands the Brahman(God) ,understands the Vedas and preserves the spiritual aspects of peoples lives, A Kshatriya is one who protects people, a vaishya is the Trader/peasant class and the shudra is the labour classes. Probably this was not decided at birth but by the duty one undertook, and i dont see a reason why a shudra should become an untouchable , or why a brahmin should preside over the other 3 classes. They just are doing their jobs.  But then almost every human institution degenerates and this is what probably has happened .

I am questioning the Caste system prevelant today.

Why should a baby born to a brahmin be a brahmin when the baby does not even know what the hell the Vedas are or for that matter who the hell(heaven) God is?? Why should a shudras baby be a shudra when it probably is not even a fraction dirty as a grown up brahmins mind is??
What would you call a brahmin kid who tends to like trading than reading the vedas? What would you call a kshatriya boy who is too afraid to fight and falls down unconscious when he sees blood. Who the hell are the brave soldiers who fight on the borders of our country so that we don’t get to see another Mohamed of Ghazni? Do they all belong to the kshatriya class. If so would a brahmin send his son to join the armed forces? Is a shudra allowed to send his son?? and is a shudra joins the army is he given a separate quarters because he is an untouchable?
In the present world can a CEO say that he is the topmost class and a mechanic is an untouchable?? How much more nonsensical can it get?

Why is it that the caste system is so prevalent that it has become a synonym to Hinduism all across the globe? Why is it that we are the way we are….Once the richest Nation and now among the poorest.
Why is it that we dont seem to learn!
