Nationality, caste, colour, creed, ritual-based religion: do we still have to wear these badges? When these identities become obsolete, dead, and gone? Nations across the globe have become or becoming cosmopolitan in both the physical and virtual worlds. Political boundaries are only relevant to the administrative and bureaucratic functioning of governments. But not for propping up nationalism and its related precept of patriotism. In a universal temperament, caste, colour, creed, and ritual-based religion are irrelevant. Instead these antiquated social and faith-based divisions clog the advance of peace and harmony in our lives.
