I just happened to check a caste based youth forum, weirdest thing, I know but can’t help to read aka think abt polls in such forums.. – leave the name of caste/religion, one poll there was interesting:

Question: Agree with intercaste marriage -> Yes/ No

Response for No is slightly higher than yes, but what I felt disturbing is to read the following responses from 2 voters:

He1: As we know how cultural difference harm a person attitude. Think about you before you step into to life, Hope first you will think, how to safe guard your family through out your life on your shoulder.Do you think other caste people will safe guard our innocent girls on similar fashion.

Just wanted to tell He1: yup, cultural diff shocks.. but caste difference doesnt shock. Culture depends on outlook of the person, not the name of the caste in his docs!

He2: marriages among all x caste is well and good…its actually nice too but no other caste should be entertained…it actually spoils our culture….

Hey He2: So u r cool abt castea1 pal marrying castea2 pal, but casteb1 guy shouldn’t marry castea1 gal.. idea is kool.. only thing is its kind of adam-eve old fashioned.

Is it not time just to stop talking about such crap and let individuals decide whats gud for their life and wats not? I think there are lot of he1s & she1s who are proud abt their caste/creed/community/color! (wat the heck!).. ok kool.. but stop RANTING if someone takes the road not taken.

Note: Am not angry with individuals, angry only with the way they feel intelligent and educated with such opinions!
