Is 'another world' possible?

Covered by the sky, surrounded by mountains is a vast cage - the earth where man is trapped in the web of discrimination

The Kathmandu valley, which was hard hit by the cold of winter, was heated by the loud slogans, processions and debates of the protestors who gathered from all over the world with the determination to 'build another world'.

Is 'another world' possible?

They gathered at the world social platform bearing the burden of discrimination, inequality, exploitation, oppression and pain they have experienced and signed the banner saying 'I am committed to ending all forms of discrimination and creating a world free from discrimination'. However, the question remains - is another world possible? Will such a world be free of discrimination?'

George Floyd, who was strangled to death by white police in America, at the same time, the images of Navraj Vik and his friends from Rukum, who were surrounded by non-Dalit villagers and brutally killed, keep coming to our eyes. Such differences are not only the need of another world, it seems to be necessary and we should not see the ugly picture of differences anymore. However, the question arises - is a discrimination-free world possible in this twenty-first century, where the development of science, information, and technology has made a miraculous leap? Although born free at birth, people are later ensnared in various forms of violence, discrimination, inequality and deprivation. It seems that the earth is a huge cage covered by the sky and surrounded by mountains, where people are locked in extreme discrimination on the basis of sex, caste, religion, class, language, color, physical condition, geography. It is difficult for them to breathe freely. In one way, man is born in the midst of differences, grows and grows in the midst of differences, and dies in the midst of differences. This painful vicious cycle that has been going on for thousands of years continues to haunt countless people even in the twenty-first century.

When studying the long series of history of human civilization, it is seen that people have gone from equality to inequality, from undifferentiated to differentiated, from freedom to closure, from unity to division. We are proud that we have made miraculous progress in science, information and technology, but it has not only failed to end discrimination but has brought more misery than happiness to human life. Why did human civilization advance in the opposite direction in such an environment? Why did human society get stuck in a more earthly cage when it should reach more heights towards equality and freedom? In the current environment, is the salvation of these human beings locked in a cage possible?

scholars analyze the beginnings of a kind of division and differentiation with the development of the family, the development of private property, and the origin of the state. This is a fair analysis in a way. However, there was no reason for differences, inequality and conflict in the development of the state and the family. Why did this happen? The root cause of this is the religion, culture and philosophy developed by the human race. Such a vision, which the then ruler prepared in his own interest to avoid losing his supremacy. The feeling of 'I am the greatest, the best' was universal among people.

The concept of first world, second world and third world has been created globally to create classification and inequality between countries. This system is exactly in line with the caste and caste system in Nepal. By colonizing the world through imperialist policies, the first world countries have made themselves paradise and the third world countries have made hell by exploiting and exploiting the resources there. Based on the power created through extreme oppression and exploitation, now the first world countries have implemented hegemonicism over the second and third world. Even in Nepal, Shudras or today's Dalits have been subjected to extreme oppression, exploitation, deprivation and discrimination on the basis of caste and caste system.

In essence, this world is not a paradise for a handful of rich and ruling classes, but a paradise. Shouldn't such structures be demolished? In this sense also the need for another world arises.

The first, second and third world system and Nepal's varna and caste system and other discriminatory structures have made the current society extremely individualistic, selfish, consumerist, cruel and inhumane. Is human salvation possible in such an environment? Is it possible for people trapped in earthly cages to escape from cages due to various reasons? Is there any such thought, idea, philosophy and path?

Now struggle and rebellion is the concrete way to free human from earthly cage. Today, glimpses of struggle and rebellion are visible on the world social stage. It is discussed as a place where the voice of the discriminated, exploited and victims resonates. However, looking at its history and present, some questions arise - does it really work in the interest of those communities? Does it aim at human salvation? Is its journey focused on the direction of human salvation? Just like the "World Economic Forum" is an "elite club" of the rich, the "World Social Forum" will also develop in the pockets of some middle-class, middle-class, and able-bodied people?

Talking about Nepal, Nepal was declared as an untouchable nation. The constitution prohibits all forms of discrimination. But why are people discriminated by different names in every place? This question is serious.

Protestors from all over the world gathered in the Kathmandu Valley in search of another world and raised loud slogans of liberation from discrimination or human liberation. In addition, they issued a manifesto and called for an end to various types of discrimination in the world. However, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights speaks of non-discrimination. There are also various conventions to end all forms of discrimination. In the case of Nepal, the constitution prohibits discrimination and Nepal is also an untouchable country. Despite all these legal provisions, it seems that the present world system is to blame for the discrimination in the world. The tendency to focus only on the rich and not take concrete steps to end discrimination is fatal for the human race. What is clear from the

facts is that another world is not possible with a discriminatory mindset, trapped in the chains and webs of discrimination. A world with justice, equality, freedom, human dignity, a world without discrimination, a world with human liberation, i.e. a world that is not like a cage is another world. Another world is not possible without the end of discrimination and inequality, religious power, caste power, patriarchy, apartheid power and non-inclusive economic power. For this, it is necessary to wake up people who do not understand that there is or can be a world beyond the current world, who are victims of extreme discrimination and who have been accepting all kinds of things given by the current state without question. Now I have to make a vow - 'I am committed to ending all kinds of discrimination and creating a discrimination-free world.'
