I was brought up in a traditional family. Most of the people living in that city practice the traditional faith. Also, the caste system forms the basic foundation of social structure. While I studied I wrote articles about caste issues. I became confused about the results of my social upbringing. Then, a serious occurrence in my family changed my thinking about my the caste system.

Then, my older late sister Bimala fell in love and married a man with different caste. From that day my parents did not allowed her to come to their house. I felt very confused by these events. After this incidents no one there would talk to her when she visited my city. They even did not allow my sister to celebrate festival. Everywhere she was criticised because the people assumed she abandoned caste practice.

One day, I gave a book and pictures to the people about caste system and I discussed these subjects extensively. People learned about the importance of freedom, respect, forgiveness, compassion and how to deal with them. I have teach many children in the school how to end bad practices. Slowly, people began to realize and they allowed my sister to enter the city. I am still getting many responses to it.

It is true, we are overjoyed to receive love and harmony, which we love immeasurably. Meanwhile, with love permission people responding with tolerance. People have to please to see that the human relationships are very important. Such relationships are rare, so I hope that people cherish our humanity.

We need to focus to have a lovely and admirable relationship between the people. We can relate very well to the life values because we brought up with similar ones. We have to be proud of the values. Some time my friends have a question about on caste system. They said that human are supposed to be born free, but then they said that one can become good human. That mean that there two kinds of human, those who are born into it and those who adopt it. If so, does that mean that the human distinguish between the two kinds? One of the more respectful aspects about our life should be is the beliefs on happiness, love and respect. This is perhaps true. Why did this occur? The simple reason that some subjects have either been perceived.

Can human rights advocate attitudes and ways of living? Of course, that is what we need to do.

Those who advocate humanity and human rights have strong agenda. If we do so, we should be prepared for the consequences because modern agenda probably has more effect these days on many ordinary people's lives for love and tolerance. The most effective human-rights groups have been those who have their educational activities without interfering in outsiders' matters.

However, if one believes in trusting the freedom and love it is easy to beat the caste system.
