The Untouchables! - Poem by Queeny Gona

We call ourselves; the 21st centurions,
Civilized and many more…
In reality, our thoughts
Still sticked to uncivilized era.
The so called civilians,
Carrying the ideas of untouchability;
Are the pillars of the society?
Pathetic! Would be the scenario.
Two decades of education,
Fails to eradicate the thoughts of untouchability…
What would come; in rescue of cleansing the minds of real untouchables,
Will ever social justice be possible?

    Yes our mindset should change first.The caste system in which some castes are considered untouchable by other castes is really a very damaging system that eats into the health of society.In a civil society all people should live respectfully with dignity.Your poem is very apt to stir the conscience.

    I am not completely knowledgeable about the caste system but yes, this is the 21st century and in a great country like India, such antiquated and socially destructive mindsets should change. A poem all people should read and take to heart (Report) Reply

    You are intelligent youth poet. You are getting to be out of the box. You are starting to realize some injustices.

    One with such a thought is one who fails to walk with time. We live in an age, civilised for that matter, where the thought of a caste system is not entertained, and is inappropriate for any mind to be acquainted with it. Among my ethnic group, the Igbo, there are some communities which still practice a caste system known as Osu today. An interesting writing. (Report) Reply
