Throughout the world, many people are discriminated based on their social standings such as jobs, wealth, authority, and race; however, in India, there has been a strict social structure that has impacted the country for hundreds of years. This social structure is known as the caste system. Members of Indian society are divided into castes, also known as jati, which from the time they are born greatly influence and shape the rest of their future (India- Caste and Class). The origins of the caste system present in India are debated greatly among many historians. Different theories and stories about the origins of the caste system have been told and past down through the years.
In Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, Nana tells Mariam that a man always finds a way to blame a woman. This mistreatment of women is depicted in the novel by utilizing multiple examples. Throughout the novel, men were able to use women as scapegoats in the Afghani society that deemed women as unequal to men. Hosseini portrays how this treatment of women was accepted in Afghani culture because men’s superiority was derived from tradition. He depicts a culture in Afghanistan where wives were seen as mere possessions, so their husbands found fault with them for the inconveniences they experienced.
Caste is not an exclusively cultural system. Caste and class are different forms of social stratiﬁcation. Jatis are ranked in the caste systems, whereas positions are ranked in social stratiﬁcation particularly, with reference to class stratiﬁcation. The ranking of endogamous groups and not endogamy as the rule of marriage is the hallmark of the caste system. Changes in the caste system have brought about changes in the properties of individual members.

It is quite common on our part to misinterpret things that have been told to us. Krishna instructs a man to be a karma yogi rather than dharma yogi in Gita.
For thousands of years, the Indian society has been strictly segregated and stratified by its social structure, otherwise known as the caste system. The caste system precedes history; however, it is believed that the idea of the caste system began after the Indus Valley civilization disappeared, and was supposedly brought by the Aryans, who were nomads from Northern Asia and Southern Europe. Caste members only interacted with those of their class, and rarely mixed with others of different castes. Rules defined how to behave within a caste or in the presence of other castes.

As this proves to be a very slow process, heinfluenced a little caste Hindu boy to give him lesson at an anna per lesson everyday. Bakha’s craving desire for education stems from his love for all that is English. He exhibits an awareness of the values and problems of getting education.

The character of Kaikeyi is not given any importance as she is a woman of ambition, same for Draupadi. Emphasis will only be laid on the submissive woman/wife of the house who obeys the orders of her husband. Even in case of Sita, the instance when she refuses to give the test of purity is omitted from many new versions of Ramayana. Supporting this example from Manusmriti I would
To save her child from a horrible future, Kavita gives up Usha for adoption. From the text, it can be ascertained that Asha would have grown up with the resentment of her father for not being a boy and for being a burden on their family. She would have blamed for everything and hidden away. She would have never been able to become a journalist, she would have had to be a housekeeper, or even a prostitute, considering how destitute her real family was. In Shilpi S. Gowda’s Secret Daughter, Kavita was right to give up Usha for adoption because she has to deal with the resentment from her father, the suppression from Indian culture against women, and is too poor to lead a good life.
Bakha the untouchable suddenly has this mad wish to see what’s up there in the Hindu temple. And all hell breaks loose. As the crowd closes in on Bakha, the whole charade takes on the look of a show—a carnival—where a throng in the subject position, aims its collective gaze on one object in the limelight.Normally, the untouchable at the receiving end of the gaze of the touchables is not supposed to talk back.
