The believes are incorporated into our living one way or the other, knowingly or unknowingly, we may even have imparted it on someone without being thoughtful about things or without even contemplating the effect we are leaving on the other by just being ignorant, so it won’t be eradicated overnight and will take a lot of us to take step towards its eradication.
