A year of tragedies befell the world over the past twelve months
Farcical freedom bells, DSK and Murdoch trials, grand justice loss
Eurocentric lens, American trades, Israeli fighter planes, still victorious
Bankers, philanthropists, presidents, billionaires continue as glorious
Harlem’s burning, Paris in flames, London defeats alleged rioters
Class wars lost, Zapatista censored, Maoists shot in street corners
Are we to implore for equalities, or we must educate and agitate?
Will they still co-opt, shall we cop out, and ‘truths’ again fabricate?
Hinduism is not merely a way of life in India. It is also a most violent reminder of oppression countless Dalits face on a daily basis. Therefore, in contemporary times, with the growth of the Hindu terrorism, the religion and its codes need to be reassessed. The ancient religion, still barbaric, has metamorphosed into a sophisticated philosophical tool in the hands of the communalist preachers, and the majority of Hindus remain gleefully absorbed at their own religious appropriations. Time has come to revisit the myths, in order to disown the trends, and one should hope the world’s third largest religious identity has sufficient moral courage to do just that.
