Ultimately, life takes sides with real lives, not patterns; maybe more than anything. And you cannot prevent others from the most passionate journey of life, the journey to freedom. The steps of this journey can be different in each geography. Sometimes it penetrates to a stereotype and emerges as a riot of patterns and colors; turns into expression of hope, individuality, scars of life, and becomes the silent scream of objection to being perceived as a stereotype.
