Article 15 of the Indian Constitution prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. But how I wonder that after 70 years of Independence, our country still believes in caste system. “Casteism – A curse to the human kind.” This is the age old caste politics which is plaguing our country.
The recent movie Article – 15 showed the brutal actualities of our Indian Society, which is a clear and unwanted picture. It is a deeply saddened reality of our society. 2019 is the year, where modernism has arrived in every field except human brains. The unmoving standards of our society are such that it still fights for Gender Equality, Women Empowerment, Human Rights etc. Most of the times the basic human rights are being violated deliberately.
Article – 15 shows the precedent occurrence of the hour. The existence of the caste system has reached to such an extent that it is destructing the whole system. It portrays the life of a Dalit community in our society. Also represents that how the minority group is tormented by the upper caste of the society. The extreme mental and physical pain makes them loose their dear ones. They are compelled to do certain things and are hoaxed to extremity. Dalits aren’t allowed to enter the temple and are beaten to death if they wish to do so. The young ladies are assaulted in light of the fact that they are only the objects for men..
Gang rape, which gives me goose bumps while listening to it. And there are hundreds of rape cases which shuts down immediately and nobody bothers about it. The case is to such an extent that the woman is assaulted by a man who feels like a gentleman after raping her. I wonder in horror that sex is the only medium of pleasure for them it seems.
The conditions into which these people live is extremely hazardous. They are psychologically disturbed and are continuously being harassed for their existence in life. Killing of innocent people in the name of caste, reassuring that the minority groups does not survive in better conditions and suspending the officials who are willing to work according to our Indian Constitution and they are forced to follow the path of corruption. These are a few events from the film which shook my heart.
The horrendous act of torturing the minority group shows that we are still entangled in this complicated social segregation of our country. Which is a fact everyone is aware about but are less concerned. Yes, we cannot change this age old system overnight. But we can initiate conversions about these issues.
And let us all at-least gather courage to not abuse others through any mediums. It will make a great difference.
I think that we must remember- “Just because we don’t suffer or we are not suffering. It does not mean that it is not happening or it does not exist.”
Jai Hind !
