In our society, inequality committed or promoted in the name of caste, descent, community, occupation or race are punishable under the laws. Discriminatory/inequality practices do not promote progress and prosperity in the society. Such practices hinder the growth of personality, affect moral health of the community and retards the development of the whole nation. A morally healthy society discourage all kinds of discriminations and each member of such society work for the elimination unhealthy practices. Social and economic inequality increases the power and importance of social hierarchy, status, and class. As a result, a long list of problems more common further down the social ladder, much more common in societies with larger income differences between rich and poor. Here, different films and songs are published for the social equality and elimination of such discrimination practices. Our famous singer Deepak Limbu has rightly sung a song "Manche manche eutai ho ni farkera kina vo? Dharma chalne, sipa chalne, paani nachalneho?" This song really touches the human heart. The man-made traditional discrimination practiced in our society is the root cause of inequality. So, we must eliminate discrimination, victimization and other prohibited conduct from the society. Equal opportunity should be provided to all the citizens of the country. There must be the brotherhood, sisterhood and good relations among the people.

All kinds of discriminatory practices are barriers for the people to contribute to the development of a society and a country. Inequality is emerging as a central issue for the post-2015 development agenda and the establishment of the sustainable developmental goals should be promoted. Peace, prosperity, progress and happiness can be brought in the society only by discouraging evil practices. Social equality can be established by promoting education, conducting various awareness programs and making people respect the human beings, respect human rights and regard human dignity. Social equality activists work to bring about equality for all people in society.
