Every land has its untouchables
Not Just India
Only in India, they openly call out untouchables
But we too have the disdained,
The unwanted, the despised,
Those that are deemed to be at the bottom.
Too “dirty” for our regard
Too disturbing to our gaze.
But isn’t the bottom where one builds a foundation?.
So if the bottom is weak
The foundation is weak
And if we don’t care
If we close our hearts
Our foundation will crumble
Our proud towers will fall
Let us open our eyes to those cast aside
And firm our foundations with the mortar of love
