Each one has a story to share
Truth about their world to unravel
A thought provoking message to address to the society,
Something that we should have heard
But something that our presumptions didn't let us hear.
Belief silenced their truth
Negligence closed the doors of their world to that of ours
Where were they
Where are they
Where will they be in future
Who knows ?
Even they, who they are, have no clue of their next station to hault at.
So close your eyes to feel the aroma of their lands
Open the eyes of your heart instead to discover
They come from somewhere very close to our lands
But far away from our world.
We know what we know about them is minuscule
We pile up the veil of ignorance
Thinking about the caste barriers
Still ridden with the mindset, "what if the society even disapproves to accept us too anymore."
Alas! our silence silences them to the world they need to see
To the world they deserve to be in.
Break the bonds of stereotypical endorsements,
Beauty comes from within, speak up against power to ensure justice
Its either now, or never
Its either now or never.
