Watched Gandhi, the movie, with my son. In 3 sittings. 

This song stuck with me, as it defines a true "Vaishnav". Could never tolerate the caste system in Hinduism. Makes me shiver with disgust.

Time to make a new CD for the drive.

Best wishes.

we all are products of our times...different times, different beats to march.. as long as the core theme remains uncompromised, its OK

it's all in your perception...Just like everything else, castes are expressions of sophistication, embellishment refinements diversity just like colors, birds, flowers...  even food menu. 

Would you like to live in a  a perfectly homogenized world of a single clone of everything...

Caste is not same as discrimination based on race, color, gender - its illegal in USA.

Its widely practiced in a "wise" country like India.

"ANY trait" based on birth, is discriminatory.

I find it shocking actually, that such BS could take roots in a country like India.

Its not the same as birds, and flowers. 

Its like saying a red rose is better than yellow. A blue bird is better than white. And so on. 

How stupid can mankind get?

Hot stupid can Hinduism in practice be?

Mind-numbing!

That's what I alluded to as perception - mostly imposed, rather unfortunate.
