Do you agree that caste has not disappeared from contemporary India?

Answer:

  • Some of the older aspects of caste are continuing.
  • Even now, most people marry within their own caste or tribe.
  • Untouchability has not ended completely, despite constitutional prohibition.
  • The caste groups that had access to education under the old system have done very well in acquiring modern education as well.
  • Those groups that did not have access to education or were prohibited from acquiring it have naturally lagged behind.
    Caste continues to be closely linked to economic status.
