My parents live in a seemingly swanky South Bombay building. But amidst all its 'progressive' propaganda lies more than a hint of racism.
The sign-age put up above my lifts in Sagar Sangeet in Colaba in the six months since I last visited:
Lift 1: "Residents and Guests"
Lift 2: "Residents and Guests"
Lift 3: "Luggage, Servants, and Suppliers"
So let's get this straight: The same people who take care of your children, wash your cars, clean your house, run your errands, and cook your food are too ??? to travel in the same lift as you?
Yes, I'm lost for words.
We might as well say, yes, of course, we condone the caste system (or what it turned into). Please wake up now, today, not tomorrow, but today, now.
