Some 4 years ago, while strolling down the lanes of Kotla Mubarakpur colony near south extension – 1, I used to see a lot of people (mostly young ones) from North- east. They looked content and happy in their expressions, far different from the noisy localites who always look dissatisfied and angry from their expressions. I was completely mesmerized by the way they were living happily and contently in this difficult city. Little did I know then that in the coming years they will become the victim of racial discrimination without any reason except their facial features and language. Can you believe it ?? People getting discriminated on the basis of their looks only and that also in Modern Day India. Shameful and Disgusting !!! isn’t it?
Everybody knows, without any doubt, that these people are the
most calm and peace loving people in this country as compared to other states.
Delhi is infamous for its rudeness and lack of basic social etiquettes among most
of its people. So this kind of behavior is inevitable from the city
residents. Targeting this peaceful community also solidifies my belief that
Delhites target only those whom they are capable of targeting. If you want to
have a first-hand experience of this you just have to use public
transportation, whether buses or metro trains this will be evident
everywhere. What’s more shocking to me was the fact that not only Delhi
but cities like Banglore have also witnessed this kind of discrimination
against people from North-east. Earlier I had a good opinion about people of
South- India as they seemed less violent and calm people to me. Sometimes I
wonder this is due to the stressed out lifestyle or is it the people and their
culture but whatever be the reason, something’s wrong with this country. What
pains me most is the fact that bad things always happens to good people.
There are many reasons which make them favorite to me among all other communities. Those reasons are solely based on my observation and personal opinion they might be true or they might not be true but I would like to share them all with you so that they get all the respect they truly deserve:
