Boredom led me to IRC on Sunday afternoon, after a long absence due to the fact that IRC is boring.
The topic of discussion was Surti girls and guys are the best looking. Excusing the vapidness of the topic, I really dont understand why people still care about this Surti, Memon, Urdu thing. We don't live in India anymore and in the end of the day we are all Muslims. I accept the cultures and languages are different but do we really need more reasons for us not to get along.
The point that really annoys me is that each 'caste' thinks they are better than the others and that inter-marrying is discouraged. One of my cousins whose been married twice, told us once we shouldnt get married to Memons or Surtees or whatever else there is. I wish I get married to one, just to prove a point, because far as I'm concerned this is just ignorance and discrimination.
I just hope this discrimination and ignorance will not be passed down to our future generations. We are all Muslims in the end of the day, why cant we just get along?
Till next time in Waseem world
