Caste lives on, and on

By Prayaag Akbar I think these messages have to be repeated. My own guess about the stability of this system is whatever the origins, it gives men 1) status without working for it, and 2) wives again without struggle as in other societies. And a lot of time and effort is spent trying to preserve these unearned privileges. I do not see any hopes of Indian society improving without caste weakening somehow.
