Caste Free India- A Cherished Dream
We dream of a society without the existence of caste. Such an achievement would help equal rights and opportunities to all the people of our Country. The 'second freedom struggle' for a , caste-free India is a historic task entrusted to us by destiny and this is our legacy. A society that our constitutional charter desires can only be achieved through a conscious demand for change by the public. The reform has to start with oneself first. Every Indian experiences the pernicious impact of Caste and its Mechanism on one occasion or the other. Though the vicious impact of Caste and the dangers ensuing it are quite obvious in the modern world, majority Indians believe in this Institution without questioning its Scientific or Moral basis. Indians are not in a position to declare themselves proudly that they are "Indians first and Indians last". Unfortunately before being an Indian everyone is compelled to be a member of immoral Institution called the Caste. The Caste System has no place or relevance in the modern society. It is the responsibility of every Indian to oppose and fight it.
A New Wave of Progressive Thoughts
The achievements of man socially and scientifically are tremendous. But India pales off despite its glorious past before the Scientific Progress of many nations. The single most important cause which killed the power of reason and thereby Science in India is the Institution of Caste although the achievements of the Indian Diaspora across the globe in the making of Modern World are laudably acclaimed by all. Thus the Institution of Caste surprises many and depraves India from within. Though the Indians use the latest of the Technical Gadgets, they cannot claim a single indigenous innovation to their account. The Digital Age Indian is unable to cross the barriers of Caste. We are nowhere within the top 200 World Class Educational Institutions. But we shamefully top the Corrupt Nations. Many reformers from hoary past like the Charvakas, Gauthama Buddha, and the modern Social thinkers like Mahatma Jyothirao Phule, till Babasaheb Dr. BR Ambedkar fought against this mother of all evils and the false notions of superiority and inferiority in the Social Status based on birth, and the Philosophy of inequality built around the Caste. It was Dr. BR Ambedkar, the greatest and the most progressive thinkers of the modern world, who advocated â€œAnnihilation of Caste" as profounded in his great research paper published 75 years ago and wanted India to free itself from the shackles of Caste â€"Bigotry, Caste-Foolishness and Caste- Slavery to be really FREE and become enlightened. The enlightened India he wanted to built on Noble Ideals of LIBERTY, EQUALITY and FRATERNITY. It is to commemorate his 122nd Birth Day we are conducting the event "RUN FOR CASTE FREE INDIA", on Sunday the 14th of April 2013 at 6:30 AM at People's Plaza, Necklace Road, Hyderabad.
