This group of people are being discriminated and humiliated in their country causing them to be forced to leave their society. They are not being treated equally as others. This shows that the society treat different groups of people differently causing problems to arise. It also shows that the society does not have inclusiveness. There is no way that we can have an inclusive society with people having to be excluded from the society due to their
Ambedkar says that caste has destroyed all morals. On page 259 of the book, he says: “The effect of caste on the ethics of the Hindus is simply deplorable. Caste has killed public spirit. Caste has destroyed the sense of public charity. Caste has made public opinion impossible.
How unwelcoming it was at that time. The matter of class was also taken up in the novel. How the untouchables were not even allowed to enter the house of other people. How they were deprived of the basic rights and had to suffer just because they were born in a lower caste. Totally pointless and baseless, Roy again tried to highlight how the society was all about caste and
Harrison is the son of Hazel and George in the Icarus tale; Harrison Bergeron. They live in a Dystopian Society where handicaps are forced on them against their will in attempt to limit their abilities, resulting in what their government believes is deserved equality. Harrison then rebels against the government, and gets shot as his punishment. The message we are fed from this Icarus tale is that if we handicap people, or attempt to diminish diversity, then it’s impossible to have a successful society. The first reason why diminishing diversity would result in an unsuccessful society is because people wouldn’t be able to express who they are, resulting in citizens rebelling against higher power.
In a country like India where caste distinctions still flourish, where there is no fusion of the various races, where religious distinctions are still violent, where education in its modern sense has not made an equal or proportionate progress among all the sections of the population, I am convinced that the introduction of the principle of election, pure and simple, for representation of various interests on the local boards and district councils would be attended with evils of greater significance than purely economic considerations . . . .The larger community would totally override the interests of the smaller community and the ignorant public would hold Government responsible for introducing measures which might make differences of race and creed more violent than
It includes not only the present situation of exclusion but pays attention to the processes that expel the subjects from the society. In this definition they conclude that every society has a number of citizens that are excluded from the economic and social life and from their part in the common welfare. These persons cannot use their social rights without outside help, they suffer from a lack of self-respect, their skills do not correspond with their duties (commitments), they have to bear a permanent downgrade for being socially endowed and, because of that, dishonourable. In this case, the social exclusion means filling the margins of the society. This leads to various restrictions of his freedom of choice, fear of the future and humiliation of one’s dignity.
The world is a cluster of contradictions. If anything exists, that exists in contradictions, and so the ‘Fourth World’ is not an exception for it. If a born dalit, caters to the needs of oppressors at the cost of the interests of his class, and mints money, that person can no longer be a dalit. Similarly, even if anyone - though born in any upper caste or oppressive class - is neglected and evicted by his or her own class and by the main stream of society, having been deprived of human rights, that person will unhesitatingly be an underdog, and so a dalit. The social and economic positions of various sections of people are not fixed and stagnant.
INTRODUCTION If you deny any affinity with another person or kind of person, if you declare it to be wholly different from yourself—as men have done to women, and class has done to class, and nation has done to nation—you may hate it, or deify it; but in either case you have denied its spiritual equality, and its human reality. You have made it into a thing, to which the only possible relationship is a power relationship. And thus you have fatally impoverished your own reality. You have, in fact, alienated yourself. (Le Guin 1975: 209) The concept of otherness is one highly complex and interwoven with deeper issues of psychology and sociology.
The isolation of a certain group of people has a tremendous effect on those people, but also the other groups forcing them out. This isolation forces these people to form a unique culture, different from those around the world, which manifests itself in their way of life. However, isolation is often the result of hatred, which can create a boundary between the isolated people and those more powerful than them who forced them out. The Caste System in India has been instrumental in isolating the Dalit, creating a unique culture, accepting the idea that the Dalit are inferior to other castes, and allowing hate crimes against the Dalit to be seen as typical. As the World Book, Inc. shows in their reference text, India is a South Asian country, covering 1,269,219 square miles (121).
There will be chaos and disorder among or within the country. There will be discrimination among the people and no peace and harmony in the country as well as people mind too. Moreover, there would not be development activities as about mention. People would get platform to discuss issues of the country and could not get an opportunity to participate in the nation building. Moreover, people have to engage in social work as powerful people might have dominated and make to work under their control.
