Mirror Mirror On The Wall,
Who Is The Best Among Us All
I do not know what the majority population of this country has to fear. But fear they do.
Like a crying baby they have bred it, Today it’s a demon looming over their heads.
Until people from the majority community, shake themselves out of their fear psychosis the remaining 20% of this country will continue to be tormented and harassed.
And yet the answers are not so simplistic, and are deeply rooted in caste, hegemony and patriarchal bias, that so symbolize the communal mindset.
One of brutality and so to brutalize.
The fear psychosis is only a symptom. If only it could be treated.
