Vol 1 - An ephemeral glance at feudal languages!
43. When the nation surrenders and submits to the feudal language codes
When the nation surrenders to feudal languages and the codes therein, all the efforts and philosophies of the Constitution of India to maintain the social environment in an egalitarian ambience, will go futile.
The strenuously and formally maintained planar form of the social relationship before the administration and judiciary will get pushed out. What would take its place would be a social arrangement that would quite obviously have many layers, one on top of the other, in a design that looks like a pyramid. This is the way both the judiciary as well as the national administration, including the police, would view the people.
Government employment would become quite similar to that of the age-old Janmi system (feudal system of the South Asian peninsular region). That is, big-time feudal upper classes on top. Below them an array of minor upper-classes, and below them, an immensity of their henchmen.
These henchmen can be compared to the current-day police inspector, Assistant sub-inspector, Head constables, Constables &c. and the government office Superintendants, clerks, and peons. The most rough part of the governmental behaviour and attitude is generally received by the common man from them.
At the same time, the individual officials who are above these people would stand far removed from the approach of the common people. A peculiar type of un-touchablilty would block the people from approaching them.
Most of the features of the old-time caste system can be found in the relationship between current-day officialdom and the people.
REV. Samuel Mateer, has very candidly described the terrible content of the caste system in the Travancore kingdom, in his famous book: Native Life in Travancore. If in this description, one side is replaced with current-day government officials and the other side with the common people, then it would be seen that old time caste system more or less continues in the relationship between the government officials and the people.
However, no one can be blamed for these kinds of untouchablity. For, the people are getting arranged as per the design codes inside the language. Each individual would connect and react with others as per the codes attached to the slot, which is assigned to him or her, in the language codes. He or she would behave, interact, react &c. thus. He or she will change from roughness to sweetness, and vice versa, depending on the attachment codes. He or she would terrorise or would exhibit subservience. He or she would demand bribe. He or she would give bribe. He or she would act with discrimination towards the different sections of people. He or she would find salvation in extending ‘respect’ to some persons. Beyond that, he or she would achieve self-satisfaction and profit from exhibiting obeisance.
Languages which have rough and uncouth codes would create rough and uncouth social ambience. There would be some locations inside these rough language systems, where one might get to feel a brief period of refinement and softness. In these minute locations, one would find terrific and celestial beauty in the social ambience. One would fall in love with this loveliness in the brief interspaces. One would feel impelled to proclaim this to others
