Wearing no shoes in a civilized state is a crime. They should wear a pair of shoes. They should put on well-fibred shirts and saris. The women are draped around by some scantiest pieces of cloth. They, I have heard, give birth to child. Where do they empty their offspring? In the jungle? Inside cottages? Or... in a far-off hospital? Can they be permitted to get admitted into the hospital?
Giving birth to child is another crime!
Forgetting the theory of love, forgetting the consequence of malnutrition, forgetting that the Government must cascade money for the welfare of the poorest of the poor people, who are the dark-skin unshod savage breed of India and are kept aside to retreat day by day - we are making them victims in our pages of critiques.
We the city-charmed people are least concerned about the dangerous fate that looms in the future. Our eyes get ensnared in the loop of the sensational phrase, "Operation Green Hunt" and stamp our signatures of development. When Trinamool Congress MP Kabir Suman raised his voice against the Centre's anti-naxal policy – Operation Green Hunt, we got another news to chip in. We prefer gossiping over his personal matters to OGH. We forget, anything "anti-" refers, after all, to "anti-". The anti-naxal policy is an anti-human policy indeed. It is our fashion to wield our verdict of “calling them Maoists” against the people who are labelled impoverished from womb to tomb.
I fear that the world would break into pieces, still in those pieces, some will be stronger, and strength will defeat weakness. The Maoists(?) may be wiped out, still dormant anger and angst will always be there if the dreadful economic imbalance persists. Our anti-human laws and savage economic system have dehumanized them.
