Bringing it all together

What is an attritioned employee? An attritioned employee is a disgruntled employee who was not listened to in time.

What is a separatist movement? A separatist movement is a marginalised group that was not heard in time. And it is an axiom that the time, energy and resources required to please a marginalised community is miniscule compared to the time, energy and resources required to quell a separatist movement.

When does a spouse want a divorce? When the stress of living together is higher than the fear of loneliness.

Moral of the story? It is VERY important to take care of your marginalised groups, no matter who you are or what you do.
The disabled, the minorities - religious and otherwise, the women, the really oppressed poor..

Be VERY scared of those who are tormented, or left behind in your 'race'.. and be even more scared of those whom u torment.

Nicely put ki-jaana : )
Marginalization can create monsters out of ordinary human beings, and history has repeatedly told us so. The million dollar question is have we learned our lesson?

Adee said...

yes. and time and again, i go back to what Bapu said (please don't consider me a blind follower of him, i know he had some flaws, but many more good things about him)

'before committing yourself to any act, always look at the person below you, how your act will benefit or harm that person. if u r true to his benefit, u r doing well'

isn't it SO true in our rapidly modernizing but losing Indian ethos society?

I feel marginalized, attritioned, and downtrodden - welcome to America.

How do we know said...

Hi Starry: sometimes they do, and sometimes, its ur own karma..

Chowla sir: Thank you.

hi Cynosure: thank you.. i thot it was a nice post too.

Hi Id: the 2 penny answer is that we have not :-)

Hi Adee: i think what we are losing is a sense of self... not just Indian ethos... my favorite line in context is "Where will they go, who have not yet, reached themselves?"

Hi Phos: We have all made a joke out of our civilisations... we have all...
