I find friends,relatives, acquaintances getting divided deeply based on their leanings,likings of political persons,parties, religious fervour, castes in recent times. Though this phenomenon is observed on social media mostly but I am very sure it sits deep.
Individual consciousness about politics , religion ,caste should be secondary in all times, but its gaining primacy shows limited resources in country in all respects and a disharmonious race to fetch/win them through collective conscience of like minded society/people. In the long run , such pressure may create fissures, which becomes difficult to fill.
Times are so bad that a fair discussion initiated by individuals of either side is challenged by ploys like attacking persons character, abuses, loyality,origin etc.
In such a scenario , we are creating factory made humans rather than a free thinking society.
