The Caste Struggle

The Caste Struggle

How can a society built entirely around the principle of inequality become democratic? India has implemented a policy of affirmative action for the members of the lower or 'untouchable' caste, who represent more than half of the population: those who meet the policy's requirements will be employed as civil servants. THE CASTE STRUGGLE documents the results of this controversial policy, a legislative attempt to bring social and political change to India.
