“All these young people nowadays, so arrogant and rebellious,” the elders disapprove.
“And all these old people, so narrow-minded and old-fashioned,” the youth shake their heads.
“All these women, so fragile and always dependent,” remark the men.
“All these men, nothing but perverts and rapists!” lament the women.
“All these South Indians – dark skinned with funny accents,” say all the people from the North.
“And all these North Indians, just crass and uneducated,” say the people from the South.
“Oh, these black people- violent and criminal, every one of them,” declare the “white” people.
“Ah, these white people – pompous idiots, every one of them,” comment the “black” people.
“All these Christians are drinkers and sinners,” discuss the Muslim people.
“And all the Muslims are terrorists and killers.” ponder the Christian people.
But what all these people don’t really understand
Is that people are not
Just empty glass jars to be filled
And placed on different shelves judged by their shape, size and colour.
People, are people, and we should learn to accept, if not love, one another.
We are all not the same, but we are all equal.
