South Asian Subcontinent
It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!
Vol 1 - An ephemeral glance at feudal languages!

18. Codes of rough retorts!

There is another kind of ‘Upstartedness’ behaviour found in persons who are engaged in professions which are defined in local feudal languages as lower-class jobs. When on interacting with them with a very polite demeanour without displaying a dominating or suppressive demeanour, some of them would respond with a tone that can be mentioned as ‘thundering’ (In Malayalam the word would meaning ‘shocking’), retort in a barking tone, instead of giving a polite answer give a rude question back, might be some of these ‘Upstartedness’ behaviour.

Even ordinary conversation has various codes of a battlefield. A ‘battle cry’ might be a compulsory component of a barbarian battle scenario. Thundering shouts, boisterous yells, satanic glaring and such are for terrorising the opponent. The common reason for this is that conversation and communication in feudal languages do have a content of piercing each other, for achieving a submission from the other side.

However, this is not the case when a proper hierarchy of higher-lower side is perfectly established.

Actually a very specific social code has been developed for dealing with such persons who aim to overtake or create an upheaval. That includes such things, as totally avoiding dealing with such levels of persons, or else arranging/appointing someone defined in feudal languages as of their own social level or someone of a social level lower to them to deal or converse with them. Then the competition is between them, at their level or with someone lower to them.

This minute idea itself has developed as a major social communication ideology. It is seen that the English administrators who were in charge of around half the locations in this subcontinent, were at least slightly aware of this social feature. It is seen that they did strive to remove the satanic features of this item by effectively creating a blocking mechanism to its working, or to remove them completely. This thing shall be taken for discussion later.

There are a lot of codes connected to ‘Upstartedness’ in feudal languages. It is not possible to deal them all here, at the moment.

However, a minor illustrative example can be given in the next chapter.

It may be stressed here that this ‘Upstartedness’ phenomenon has influenced the history of this subcontinent very much.
