“Are you out of your mind? You want to get married to a boy who isn’t from our caste? Do you know what are you even saying? What will the society think about us? Have you ever thought about our reputation in the society? It will be tarnished! We won’t let you do this. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE!”
Now, that was the most expected reaction of any typical INDIAN parents. In the above scene, they were shouting at their girl who had fallen head over heels in love with a boy from a different caste and wishes to marry him. That is when the real struggle in her life began.
In my opinion, the two biggest reasons behind most of the issues in India are those man made barriers called, CASTE and RELIGION. Everything is divided in India in such a way that you tend to lose the count of Do’s and Don’t’s that we are to follow life long.
I still don’t understand why do we Indians pretend to be called united, when in fact we aren’t really united at all.
The only time we are united and working together is when we are in times of crises and suffering from natural calamities. At that point of time, everyone forgets all those ‘man made barriers’ and help each other face the situation. But, on any other normal day we are bothered about our caste and religion.
Right from music to arts, career and love, everything has been divided; And it’s painful to see my own people behave this way.
The worst situation is when a person wishes to marry someone from a different caste or religion.
So, what exactly happens when that situation pops up in the life of Indians?
Let us have a look at this video which has humorously put forward the reality of Indians when it comes to Caste System and Inter-Caste Marriages.
