“Injustice”…… This is something I thought I knew, that the world is an unfair place to live in and etc etc. But after reading a lot of stuff on war, poverty and exploitation, I came to know that this cruelty is something manufactured by us. We live in a society which takes day to day violence for granted, poverty as a chance of fate and war as the just vs unjust. The papers keep repeating the stories of Famine in Africa and the Miss universe competition in the same page, are these two things a part of the same global story line, where all things are supposed to just happen? There are a lot of questions but the answers are usually buried in layer after layer of misinformation and propaganda. I want to know why we stopped thinking of another world?
Is another world possible? A society where all men are treated equal, where cooperation is given a chance instead of competition. I do not know for certain but every single day I dream of that world. Yet nothing changes, everything is static. It seems as if the world stopped its eternal motion until a bolt of lightning struck this interlude, It’s the lightning of revolt, its thunders echoing the song of millions proclaiming that they are Free! This is my dream slowly unfolding in the theatre of history. It is not my dream anymore it is our dream now, which wishes to fulfilled at any moment.
It is an innocent wish but which seems like a radical nightmare to all those multitudes of people who benefit from this unfair world. They shun us, they try to strangle our voices but these acts only make us more determined to act. It is time to act, strive for a change and after witnessing revolt after revolt of millions of masses from Arabs to the Nepalese, I have nothing to fear because “They are few and we are many” and we are joined together in space and time by all those countless revolutions, all those acts of revolt and progress comes back to this moment, fragile yet unwilling to yield and…
In return we shout “SEIZE THE MOMENT”.
