Why do you want to hide your lower caste identity? You must study your caste origin... You are hypnotized by the illusive greatness of higer castes. The higher caste claims that they are great in every aspect but you see in the present era it is only the capability which proves man's greatness and not his caste. If you have read Mahabharata you will come to know about Mahaveer Karna, he had been exploited and disgusted and held incapable being a Kshatriya....but you know what did he said... सूतो वा सूतपुत्रो वा यो वा को वा भवाम्यहम्। दैवायत्तं कुले जन्म मदायत्तं तु पौरुषम्॥Whether I am a weaver or his son, whoever or whatever I am, the birth in this family was given by my Daiva or fate. But the prowess and power I have accomplished are by my own self. Therefore brother believe yourself that you are born to do great things and also teach the same to your children. Birth is not in our hands but the prowess and power can be obtained by proving our abilities. Not to get distracted and disturbed by what other castes say walk on the path of strength (intellectual and moral) and they will respect you. and always remember one thing that ' You get what you deserve therefore always try to increase your deserving power so that you will get everything according to it. Thanks 👍🏻
Everything you said is 100 % correct. But the moment I say anyone that I belong to scheduled caste, my friends and colleagues perspective on me changes. They tired to avoid me and it’s a kind of modern caste discrimination. all I’m trying to do is.. my son doesn’t want to go thru this in his life.
caste is very much alive in modern India.. both in rural and urban India.. both among educated and uneducated. not sure when India will be free of caste
I’m trying to find a solution for this. I can change India.. but I’m trying to get rid of myself.
