Experiencing Racism in My Own Backyard..by Malay Ghosh.

I am writing this article with utter shame, and disgruntled that we INDIANS especially certain communities in INDIA are extremely racist. Having said this, I myself feel responsible for not coming out in open and discussing about this extreme issue.

I am someone who belongs to a defense background and since I was a kid I have been brought up as an INDIAN not as a Bengali, When I first came to Kolkata I realized that how fragmented our society is. People belongs to certain community would come to Kolkata and get settled here but once they are in majority in certain areas they wouldn’t like to see the face of Bengalis? And it doesn’t just happen in Bengal but it happens everywhere in India wherever these communities live, for e.g. when these communities go to say Mumbai or Hyderabad, they behave the same way.

They don’t like to mingle with the communities from that particular region… and the funniest thing they do racism based on eating habits, just because they don’t eat Non-Vegetarian Food that’s why they don’t like to be around the people who eat Non-Veg Food. I am not saying that everyone is like that even among them there are few good people but sometimes a Single Rotten Fish can pollute the water and the  same way few people can actually do more harm and the Majority…

So, I have a simple question why the hell they come here or wherever, where people from that region eat Non-Veg Food?

All these came to my mind, as one of my Friend from Abroad faced a situation where he was denied to get a place on Rent based on his ethnicity. He is an NRI and came here on a transfer from his company for 2 years, being an NRI he was looking for a decent place on Rent, So when we started searching for some good apartments in and around Ballygunge, there we realized that majority of the societies belonged to a certain Ethnicity and they don’t allow people who are either Bengalis or Muslims. I was in Utter Shock. I was like Man if Bengalis didn’t allow them to stay in Bengal then they wouldn’t have been staying there? Common this is not the way things happen…

But unfortunately Bengalis are so LAME or have been Hand Pecked and they tend to look at the other side. Bengalis would fight with another Bengali for them…But they would never fight for a Bengali against their own community which is kinda sad…

The problem with these People, who does Racism, is that they feel they can buy Bengalis with Money and I guess if these things continue then I wouldn’t be surprised…

Now the question is why am I raising this Issue?

Because I am neither LAME nor Hand Pecked and certainly not someone who can buy me and that’s why I would like to tell everyone that I am here to fight against anyone who wouldn’t follow the Constitution of INDIA which says and everyone is equal and everyone deserves a fair chance… Please think about this Issue and Do No Put in Under the Back Burner… Coz one day you might face the same situation as my friend did… So Wake Up and Raise Your Voice Against Discrimination…
