    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

    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.

    yes.

    [​IMG] I beat you to it [​IMG] - a simple yes was going to be my initial response, but I thought I'd give it just that little more...

    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.[​IMG]

    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.
