Caste Based Census in India

Standard

 

Caste Based Census.

Indian politicians want caste based census now. I don’t know what purpose it will serve except clearly establishing castes once again which actually started waning. Now many subcastes are forgotten and people have started marriages within broader community groups.

But politicians want divisions to continue so that they can continue their politics.

BJP especially is a great let down.

Any way, I have an interesting proposal. The babus (Indian politicians are referred as babus in India – rather derisively. Babu means master) can start caste based census in both the houses of parliament – Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Then extend it to the state assemblies.

May throw out interesting facts.
