Ananya Badithe explores prejudice so often directed at people based solely on how they look
I have been trying to understand the concept of physiognomy Like a colour scale but with an in-built hierarchy The colour of the skin becomes the primary identity… Might as well add it to the resumé and the CV.
What happens when law becomes a victim of physiognomy Then tries to bring order to an ordered society? Rules and regulations find a home within obscurity Then people start to “run out of breath” of equality.
People start to choke under the knee of physiognomy Pleading and gasping for their rights to impartiality Symptoms of a virus bigger than the Covid-19 The self-destructive nature of this ludicrous humanity.
Logically speaking, from the stance of biology The colour of the skin is a matter of evolving The vital trait of biological adaptability Satirically also is the patsy for physiognomy.
The roots of physiognomy lay deep under our history “Deviation from social norms” is a trait of abnormality It is about time we treat people’s sick mentality And make this world a place for humans, not their social identity.
