As it obtains currently, equality is more a political slogan than any thing else. Equal rights, equal privileges, equal status, and what not form the agenda under this tag. All this leads to several kinds of reservations based on caste and creed with some political manoeuvring or the other giving a look of an anarchy in the total system. Any way, this should or should not go the way it is doing is an all time debate at different levels generating for and against speeches on the topic in an unending measure.
But, then what about the Nature, or say for that reason, some natural gift or the other to different individuals?. Do we equalise a river with an ocean, or can we raise the size of a small tree to that of a banyan?. Can any one put a hillock to equate its size to that of the Himalayas. Recently a girl in some rural areas claimed that she has the calibre of singing in much better a way than that of Lata Mangeshkar but she is the victim of the caste prejudice, hence getting no recognition from any where. What an argument?. Lata Mangeshkar is a Pacific Ocean of the talent gifted with the divine bliss of a superbly melodious voice like a nightingale’s. It’s not that some one on this earth donated her this skill, or she was selected as such out of turn as some reserved category. She had to compete inch by inch with lot many singers of top repute in her early days in the field practicing indefatigably day and night for the purpose. Her’s is a rank not transferable by human hands, nor it can be reserved to some one else by any legislation. Her talent is an immeasurable divine gift to her adoption of which by any one any where is much beyond any kind of manipulation.
