The coffee experience.......

Well it starts like this , I was sitting at Coffee Bean at the airport .......


                              
Suddenly I saw that around it all that was part of it  had wooden flooring and the other part where people could eat (set up by the airport authorities ) was in fact with marble flooring. It struck me then that we say that we stop the caste system which exists  in many places (especially India) and blame the illiterate for it but what are we creating here???????????????


Whoever can afford to have a coffee for Rs 100 (that is like $3) can sit in the comfortable chairs and the other middle class for whom it may be expensive to buy that cup of coffee have to sit on plastic chairs. We blame villages/underdeveloped areas/rural areas for having a caste system , which treats one superior to another existing even today but we remain blinded by the fact that in metropolitan cities or even in this case the airport we are in fact creating it ourselves.......


I do not seem to realize the fact that we blamed the uneducated people for their backwardness and the mistakes that they create due to it in society when we educated are creating the same mistakes they committed!!!


So what's the difference between us and them?????


Besides the fact of course  we have studied thick textbooks to gain worldly knowledge but yet miss on the most important part that we should have knowledge of  'COMMON SENSE' which is quite uncommon as my mother says so......


Well just because we have studied that does not make the illiterate or uneducated people as you may refer to it any inferior to us ........ . And I would word this differently if we believed in equality and follow what we learnt and as at least I fail to see so hence I word it this way.


My appeal to those who refer to themselves as 'EDUCATED' is that remember what you learnt about one of the causes of World War I and the reason for the failure of League of Nations was the same which was lack of unity and understanding of human nature....


Reflect on this thought and lastly.....


Wake up and look around you and all that I am talking about you will completely understand whether educated or not......


Think it over.........
