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?
