Most human beings have this instinct of being superior to other fellow beings. Be it in terms of wealth, power, skills or whatever. When they don’t have any such superiority , they try to build an image in the society to prove that their particular group is superior to others. Be it the superiority of one race over the others, one religion over other , or one sub-sect being superior over other or one skin color over other.There have always been issues with such differences ( which in realty are made up in people’s minds)
This mentality of degrading the “other group” should be eliminated. Some people might think that they do not think in this way. But take a closer look at your inner self. You might have once in a while without your own knowledge thought of some “category” of people as lower compared to you. Even among the most educated group of young people as a matter of fact, some or other form of inherent feeling exists that makes them feel superior over some other group of people.
To bring about a sense of equality, I think (and follow) that we should stop distinguishing people on the basis of religion, region, caste (which is a cheap kind of categorization in some countries ). Never ever relate the characteristics of someone with their religion or region or skin color.
Can this happen ?
Can we try inculcating such liberal thoughts ?
