Vol 1 - An ephemeral glance at feudal languages!

50. The mutual fierce competition among the oppressed sections

Revolution will come. Social reformation will happen. A new generation will rise. Social heights and lowliness will get erased. A new Mankind will appear on the social scene. Even though one can feast and celebrate on these words, the solid fact is that in a feudal language social set-up none of these things will happen.

If and when revolution takes place, the individuals holding the varying positions will change. That is all. The same old social ups and downs will come back with the same old rocklike stamina and stability.

The actual fact is that suppressed classes can join and unite and push down very easily those who hold them down. However this is not the ways things happen.

It is among the most suppressed and repulsed classes that the most terrible mutual fights, and competitions happen. At this moment, I cannot remember whether it is Edgar Thurston or Samuel Mateer, who did mention a very specific information about this.

In the ancient caste system, the Brahmins and other higher castes did very categorically denote the precise location or slot or position of each caste. Who is higher and who is lower, to each level. However, about the lowermost castes, they did not make this hierarchy clear.

This did lead to a continual competition among the lowermost castes, which was most comical and hilarious for the individuals of the higher castes to watch.

The attitude of the lowermost castes was not to unite and to move against those who had been traditionally suppressing them. Nor was there any urge to unite and develop on their own, ignoring the higher castes and classes.

Instead of that, what they continuously did was to argue and prove who is a higher caste in comparison to the other. That means they would assemble a lot of proof to disparage and demean the competing caste.

See this illustrative theme:

In a college, there is a very clear-cut hierarchy of positions. The principal, the professors, the lectures, the lab assistant &c. However, at the very bottom of the array, there is no information on who is higher. The security guard or the gardener. There is continuous verbal argument among them, as to who can command or order the other. Each would claim his own superiority by enumerating a list of items, which are supportive to his side of argument: Age, uniform, the higher position of his own superior &c.

This daily verbal claims are watched by the higher up individuals with a lot of curiosity and extreme enjoyment.

This was more or less the same manner in which the higher caste individuals watched with nonchalant hilarity, the mutual competition, and claims and counter-claims of the lower castes, amongst themselves.

There is a great deal of connection to the codes in feudal languages, to the sympathy-deserving mental attitude of the lower positioned persons, and to the graceless attitude to it by the higher placed. Both sides are equally the victims of the satanic codes of feudal languages
