    OMG, the reasons India has a caste system are myriad and are to do with thousands of years of history. Do you really want someone to explain it to you?


    It is of course an indefensible system but officially it is illegal even if that proscription is widely ignored.

    Uh huh, that's a fairly succinct precis. It's very inexcusably unjust, but it's effectively argued that India is not alone in operating a system of this kind.

    You mean to say there are other places that keep the downtrodden down? :eek: (that was mock-shock as I am full aware it is the unfortunate truth).

    Caste systems are world wide. It's an interesting topic both scientifically and socially.
