“But Mind You I Don’t Believe in Caste!”

Dude, what’s your caste?
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!

Do you enjoy reservations?
Aah how lucky you people are!!
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!

We people struggle so hard to get admissions
And you all… Aah so lucky you people are!!
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!

I come from a Brahmin family
We follow our rituals!
What rituals do you people have?
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

Aah… I thought you were a Brahmin
Because you look like one!!
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

You scored such good grades!!
But did you get admissions on the basis of reservations??
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

I worship our gods and this is our culture
that we have been following throughout
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

Oh… You are fair…
your complexion doesn’t let me believe
that you are not a Brahmin
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

I never was Castiest…
I come from a poor family
But then too these people get such facilities!
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

There is no Castiesm nowadays..
May be practiced in some rural areas…
no one follows it in urban areas
But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!

But mind you I don’t believe in caste!!
