Great frunchy 2012-09-18 5:38

Hello Angshu,

it looks like a lovely day. I personally don't like the idea, that people are divided into different classes, but as a european i also don't really understand much about it.

I like the composition with the seaside and the rows of houses descending into the back. TFS, best regards, F.

Default To frunchy: Caste & Classes

Thanks for your visit & critique Franz!

Caste system is legally abolished in India now, but the reality is far different. This system was devised in the Vedic ages (between 1700 and 500 BCE) for people to have specific roles in the society.

Unfortunately this system was used in a negative manner, maligned & used to benefits of the higher classes...so much so that caste system became a social evil of demonic proportions

I doubt whether the traces of this system can ever be eradicated....in the Indian cities, these are no longer prevelant, but in the hinterland, the situation has not changed much....actually education, literacy & such systems go hand in hand in inverse proportion. lesser the literacy (as is in Indian villages), more would be the proliferation of caste system

For us sitting in urban houses, airconditioned settings, its difficult to comprehend the reality fully!

Best Regards
Angshu
