The Caste System - Poem by Aparna Chatterjee

Doesn’t matter
If we are Brahmins
Or Kshatriyas,

The need for sex
Demeans us all…
The need for food
Starves us all…
The need for love
Weakens us all…

In the eyes of nature,
We are all equal.

Natural disasters
Don’t kill
The Brahmins,
The Kshatriyas,
The Vaishyas,
Or the Shudras.

Nature doesn’t
Pick and choose.
It punishes us all.

(Poem themed on Equality)
