    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_(outcaste)

    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?

    why r u being so mean to me??? i never did nothing to you yur thinking yur all that but yur not....im tryin to talk about a real problem here in the world and u can only laff at it.....some places in the
    world still have slavery and thats wrong!!!!!!


    Maybe because nobody, and I mean nobody knows what the following mean:

    "r"
    "u"
    "yur"
    "laff"

    And it's awfully nice of you to say it's wrong; but it does not mean anything.

    mr gardener says that the other societys got a caste system too -- like bangaldesh and pakistan......he also says that when poeple are inslaved like in colonial times that they get whats called a 'stockholm syndrome' -- not exactly like that but kinda like it cos i forget the name exactly.... so they are oppressed then their acting like the colonial masters that enslaved them in the 1st place and so the poor indians start acting like their all british and treating the untouchables all bad
    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.
