Are you for F'in real? But yeah, your professor was correct, though human rights organizations are opposing discrimination and mistreatment based on the caste system. See the following Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_caste_system

arnold, to answer your question: yes there are still dalits in their caste system. here's some further reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_caste_system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalit_%28outcaste%29 i see that you're in night school, arnold. some of our members here might not be familiar with that or have overlooked that, when they questioned your grammar. can you tell us more about your night school?

There is nothing to think. It exists; and it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Your closed-mindedness disgusts me.
If I lived in India, I’d certainly vote Shiv Sena.

Yeah, I read your thread on "what did you do last night." I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!
As an aside, please take a look at my thread in the politics forum, and let me know what you think, but please don't take offence, because before Lebanon I never concerned myself with the Israel issue, and so know little about it (although I do know the basics). The reason I am now concerned with the issue is because I have many Lebanese friends.

no offense taken, I am addressing your question as we speak, and then I am off to smoke a water pipe.

Err, a racist caste system is "not necessarily a bad thing"? Considering that and the phrase that began your post - i.e., "[t]here is nothing to think" -- you might want to refrain from throwing the term "closed-mindedness" around that beautiful glass house of yours.
You've also bitten pretty hard on a piece of troll bait, btw.
