Indian Caste System: Essence and Reality

Bhupen Chaudhary (Editor)
Synopsis The main focus of this book is to examine the nature and motivation of caste hierarchy and factionalism among the different religious communities in India like Hindu, Muslim and Christian. This study has led to the exploration of the connections between economic and political power, through analysis of local political systems and discussion of the extent to which class and party’s interest link people of different castes and also internally differentiate caste and subcaste groups. Many newly emerging social questions have also been discussed, i.e., the degree to which these changes have affected patterns of rank, the extent to which the caste system is still a factor of social organization, and to what extent to which the new situation, added to a greatly increased ease of communication, has stimulated larger caste groupings in the form of regional and national caste associations.
