Caste System in Contemporary India : Issues and Implications

"As the modern India emerges with a significant presence on the world scene, this book on Indian caste-system highlights the challenges before the nation to ameliorate their condition as a matter of urgency to bring diffrent dimensions of Indian culture to the centre of all civilizations of the world. This volume, if read with an open mind, will enlighten the reader as to know and appreciate our Indian culture on the one hand, and also will enlighten the reader, how we are caught up in a terrible trap of caste system which, to say the least, denies human diginity and distorts the image of God within us on the other hand. These research papers will help one to have a critical look at ourselves, keep off our defences and rationalisations. The authors strongly and authoritatively highlight innumerable possibilities of confronting the evils of the caste system with Indian values and ethos. Human being standing under hierarchy, inscribed by the purity-pollution binary seem to be in a socio-religious-economic standstill. The title of the book, `Caste System in Contemporary India: Issues and Implications' is indicative of this standstill experience and the yet-to-be realized utopias. The book will definitely throw a challenge to the present generation to move from orthodoxy to orthopraxis."
