Was the caste system devised in ancient India defective?The caste system in our country has seen many critical analysis and it has a tremendous effect on our policies for development of poor and downtrodden specially belonging to lower castes. The Government initially had an applause for its reservation policies after independence but later it proved to be a bone of contention between the political parties.
Anyway the caste system was devised long back by some social leaders or learned people in the court of mighty kings and that might had worked nicely during that age of monarchs but in today's perspective it is not only like an obsolete measure but is also creating lot of problems in the governance as well as creating unnecessary distortions in the society.
The time has come when Govt has to boldly abolish such reservation systems and if possible only care for the financially weaker sections or destitute.
What is the opinion of the members on this?
