It is customary for the average Indian to talk about the Caste system…

And there are many Brahmins – those who know history, and those who do not know it are just two varieties. So many of them (who are in the second category) feel that by being anti-Brahmin they are correcting a historical wrong, and that is the right way to behave. Of course most of us are just born in a B household and have almost NO RIGHT to be called a B. We may not know our history, our vedas, Sanskrit, …do nothing that a B is supposed to do…but hey we are ‘B’ .

Just to get the perspective right read this article by a friend Sanjeev Nayyar – it appeared in Hindustan Times and now it is available on this website. An interesting website, please feel free to explore what it has..
