    This is an alarming issue all over India... Even after centuries and millenniums our youngest are not able to overcome caste racism... I thought all along that younger ones exposed to modern world would overcome religious/caste barriers but stand wrong in my expectations... This issue is not limited to Hindu religion alone... Also present in almost all other religions including Muslims n Christianity.... We as humans will never excel until and unless we are convinced that all of us are children of same God irrespective of our castes n religious practices....

    I think it is better to remove all different caste system and make only one caste that's INDIAN OR BHARATHIA. all problems may solve, But here all political parties depends upon caste systems vote. It may create more problems also.
