Discrimination has become so common in day-to-day life that we overlook it even when it occurs right in front of our eyes. Most of us didn’t realize that discrimination invaded our own house when a house help was offered a different glass to sip water from.
In yet another episode of classism mirrored officially in public places, we have an apparently posh society in Pune that has a note pasted right on the lift that critically discriminates against humans.
Segregating humans comes naturally to Indians.— Sandeep Manudhane (@sandeep_PT) May 5, 2022
From one of the biggest, most posh societies of Pune
A Twitter user named @sandeep PT shared a photo of notice outside a lift that clearly demonstrates how there’s no iota of shame in people who openly flaunt their classist views.
This tweet has caused quite a stir on Twitter, and it is justified.
Have observed such signages at many places/societies. https://t.co/uJaSSwxgbQ— Santosh George (Freedom of Thought) (@Th0ppil) May 6, 2022

They should be ashamed. What’s the point of all the education of this is what they want to do? https://t.co/z92VxN3MVx— Anand Acharya (@ElasAnand) May 5, 2022
its less about the so-called maintenance, its more about the “mental comfort” of the orthodox residents/rule-makers, who feel uncomfortable cuz a service worker is in the same cubicle as them for like 20 seconds. and its cultivated at such an early age. https://t.co/0KftRBVSzx— guncle sam (@faguettipasta) May 5, 2022
A society where NOBLE EDUCATED SAVAGE lavish off their stupidity by preaching EQUALITY and selling CHARITY. Masked Identities of Draconian Gentry class. https://t.co/dR7Erj2zKn— Ravishankar (@Ravishankar4771) May 5, 2022
Racism is deeply entrenched in the Indian elites psyche. These same people then emigrate to Western countries and scream racism when things don’t go their way. https://t.co/8xdmABAp12— NRam (@NRamac76) May 5, 2022
They said it’s 2022 and our society is free from the clutches of discrimination. *Slow claps*
