Three phases of caste

Post by Seva Lamberdar on Wed Mar 23, 2016 8:45 am

Caste, which originally during the Vedic times had only occupational connotations and was not hereditary (based on birth), later (during last few millenniums) became stratified within the families merely as a means to achieve vocational advantage (specialization) socially, and nothing more. But now, in less than hundred years (thanks to the Govt. quotas and benefits based on caste in education and jobs etc.), caste has become totally territorial and is being guarded by its adherents (basically quota / reservations beneficiaries) quite militantly.

The solution certainly is to get rid of the current caste based quotas and benefits as quickly as possible and instead introduce a system of Govt. help based on economic necessity alone.
