purpose of this website is to provide information about the widely spoken
of phenomenon of the caste system in India. I have focused on the role
of caste in modern India, yet in order to have a basic understanding it
is imperative that India’s vast history is not overlooked. Therefore, I
have provided a brief historical background in order to provide a context
in which to place the information about the current role the caste system
plays in India. I have also added a page of sources consulted and linkswill
lend to a greater and more complete picture.
