the last line of this was actually pretty insightful. arnold, thank mr. gardener for teaching you things

also all you other dudes shouldn't make a big deal out of spelling errors, especially if you think he's a gimmick, because then wouldn't his bad spelling be intentional?

Arnold,

I appreciate the fact that you are concerned about India's caste system and care enough to be upset by the disregard for the less fortunate that some members on this forum have displayed. It's sad to know that such an oppressive social system still exists, and even more disturbing to find out that a large portion of the immigrants from that part of the world that are living among us in the US could be the very ones supporting such a form of slavery in their homeland. Certainly it's not the "untouchables" who are fortunate enough to travel and work here. You might want to bring these points up in your class; it would be interesting to hear Mr. Gardener's reaction.

In Hindu religion they have different caste of systems and the top caste they rule every thing and if a lower caste touches them or drinks water from the same tap or go to the same warship place as the top caste the top caste person can kill him or punish him as he likes. This rule is not just for the lower caste if you are not the same caste as the top caste they call you unclean

What ever happened to the "as Westerners we shouldn't judge other cultures" belief? They have their caste system, and if you don't approve, then my advice is to stop being so "Eurocentric". Who knows, maybe they like their caste system, or maybe they are incapable of handling freedom/liberty? Just like the Iraqis were happier under Saddam, and can't handle freedom themselves (or so the argument goes from anti-war protesters).
