Have you ever been in a minority oppressed by a majority? Minority is always a subject of ridicule. Right from my birth, I was a minority. I was born a left- hander in a time when left was considered "wrong". (The parts of the body were the right hand and the 'wrong hand' --ulta haath..) I am so proud of my parents that they did not forcefully convert me to a right hander. It would have been such a big disaster curbing my natural instincts. Right from desks to a computer mouse to a guitar, I had to face the oppression of the majority. (Its logical from a business sense point of view, but when you stand in my shoes, its oppression alrite!)
I was also a religious minority. Jainism however, did not ruffle anyone's feathers and so I luckily faced no huge oppression on this front.
Women have been trying to fight so long for equal rights, however where are we still? If you look in rural areas, equality is a distant dream!
The point I'm trying to make is that the majority is not always right, one needs to adopt a more balanced and sensitive view towards everyone to ensure the success of a democratic system.
Lowly vote-bank politics should be a thing of a past. One needs to target an inclusive growth.
