CHILDREN LIGHT THEIR LAMPS TO DISPEL DARKNESS OF CASTEISM
The children of the CSI Diocese of Madras come together with lights to exhibit their hope in creating a casteless society.
Their conviction propels them against caste which is ignorance and evil. Helpless, as they wish to torch the tentacles of casteism and dream to burn casteism to ashes. Children are taught that God has created all people, men and woman in His own image. This truth confuses them when they see in reality women treated less and many people made inferior and unfit to live. It is perplexing to know that they are born to be so.
It is scary to figure out our nation turning in to decaying corpse by the deadly Caste virus. The adults inject the venom of caste in to the veins of the innocents is a disheartening fact.
What more these vulnerable lot can do at the face of violence? Will their cry for peace be heard?
Today children are on the streets and radiate peace with a hope they will be heard and understood and responded well by the grownup masses. May be it is God who uses babes to bring peace when the adults turn dumb and cold.
Their God of life and love is their only hope to grow in to the future.
The Bishop, Rt. Rev. Dr. V. Devasahayam is obviously the driving force behind this humble peace initiative to appeal the general public to join in the movement of peace and love to realize a new humanity. Thanks to the department of Dalits and Adivasi concerns of the CSI Diocese of Madras, for venturing this sparkling event.
