Casteism Corruption and Social Development in India

A K Singh (Author)

Caste system is inhimian in its current form and its exploitative aspects must be abolished. Institutions and practices that lead to the disintegration of society require to be scrapped, however venerable their antiquity may be. Whatever might have been the historical basis for the development of caste system, it has degraded the great ideal of the ancient Upanishads which affirm that an individual as such is a spark of the spirit, a ray of the divine. In presenting these facts and features, the idea is to point cut the weakening of motives for conformity to social norms and the disruption of social relationships and social bonds. The central and the state governments took various measures to achieve these objectives through legislation and economic, social and cultural activities through successive Five-Year Plans. The book will prove an informative and most useful asset for students, scholars and teachers in this field.
