I am trying to get an understanding of it. Ranagankayammas book is a critical review of Ambedkars publications on the question, Ambedkar attempts to explain Sati in the terms I mentioned. ________________________________ From: OPE-L [mailto:OPE-L@SUS.CSUCHICO.EDU] On Behalf Of Jerry Levy Sent: 19 February 2007 16:22 To: OPE-L@SUS.CSUCHICO.EDU Subject: Re: [OPE-L] Caste system 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?
