Hi Paul C: A few days ago you asked about the tradition of Sati ("widow immolation") and now are asking about the condition of dalits ("outcastes"). But, wasn't sati primarily an upper-caste tradition? I don't really grasp yet what you are trying to comprehend. What is the context for your recent questions on caste? In solidarity, Jerry > Why have the political measures - special representation in parliament etc, failed to uplift the dalits?
