Is it right to blame 'Manusmriti' instead of correcting ourselves?The nationwide protest against the SC ruling on SC/ST Atrocities Act has raised new curtains in the ongoing debate about the issue. One of the Panelists in a News channel went on blaming 'Manusmriti' for the present state of affairs in this country. As we all know that the primary four communities were segregated based on the profession and the division of castes and sub-castes had been shaped up by our ancestors in the later part.
But what surprises me is that our leaders' political aspirations and intentions which brought to this state of affairs were not criticised and poor 'Manu' was put to blame. These politicians go on competing each other to raise the quota of reservations and try to blame a political party tagging it with religion and all get united to throw the blame on someone. It is not late, we have to take care of the deprived classes of the society and should continue it till they get a space to survive on their own but not to the creamy layer of the same sect to enjoy the benefits forever. Don't blame Manu or someone but try to correct ourselves and build a new and healthy society. Isn't it?
