A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a small speech on the topic of ‘discrimination’.
Discrimination is the oppression of marginalized sections of society. It involves pushing them to the fringes or edges of society and depriving them of their basic rights as human beings.
Discrimination can be of many forms. The most predominant one is racial discrimination where people are discriminated against on the basis of the colour of their skin and their racial ethnicity. Gender discrimination takes place predominantly against women. This can be seen when they are denied equality and basic rights, especially dignity and respect in education and workplaces.
In India, discrimination based on the caste system is also prevalent. This class hierarchy where people in the lower strata of society are discriminated against can be seen across various countries. However, measures are actively taken nowadays to improve this situation.
