When we were in the elementary schools it was usual to link the person with the profession of his/her father such as the son of the headmaster or the daughter of the officer or the son of the midwife or the daughter of the foreman.
In the songs we hear the girls' songs praising the engineers, the army or police officers, or the teachers.
Those officials or workers, or farmers or small scale merchants were forming the middle class in the society which makes the events as it represents the melting pot of the community ethics components.
The middle class remained the safety valve which preserved the balance, the solidarity values, and social peace.
The Middle class provided the country with geniuses in several fields and formed the hope for the Sudan's bright future.
The social ladder was reconciling with special attention to education and knowledge as the keys for glory and high ranks.
The university lecturer was the top of the social pyramid or in other words education and knowledge was the top priority.
With the emergence of the free market policies and the domination of the scrounger traders, the middle class started its journey towards disappearing..
Year after year the middle class started vanishing as the Sudanese inner life changed and became empty.
Nowadays there is a very huge gap between a minority which is about to die from glut and majority starving.
There is a feeling of injustice as families fear from the future.
This dominating feeling is reflected negatively in the language of dialogue which became very tough even among the family members.
It is true that the life demands are increasing within the middle class family and sometimes impossible.
I heard that a female student told her colleague who came to the university from one of the states "Open your mind and you can resolve all your problems".
The poor girl was disappointed as it became clear for her that she cannot survive unless she deviates morally to become able to fulfill the requirements of the university fees and accommodation.
The middle class was lost and the social contract disintegrated.
The father absents himself all day hours working in more than one place to be able to meet the increasing daily demands.
He returns home almost exhausted without finding anytime to know what is going on inside the family.
The mother, daughters, sons are crushed with sorrow and poverty feelings.
The middle class family is standing on a ground of rusty nails as all the necessities are not available including education, transportation and even the food.
