Our country India has long been a victim of classiﬁcation of human beings on the basis of their race, gender, class, caste, estate, etc. We are all born with the same biological system but our shear luck decides where we are placed in the society.

The Divine Will “There is will in God as there is intellect: since will follows upon intellect.” It is clear in this passage that St. Thomas asserts that there is will in God, which we call the divine will. All the perfection is in Him so one could say that the perfection of the will is in God since it follows upon intellect. The next question as regards the divine will that St. Thomas tried to elaborate upon is the question whether God wills something apart from Himself. St. Thomas clearly says yes, that God wills creatures apart from Himself and these creatures are ordered to the divine goodness that is God.

Social exclusion is a much broader concept than poverty but it does encompass it. It focuses on what factors prevents an individual from having the same opportunity given to the majority of the community. In India even though the caste system was abolished in the 1950’s it is yet hard to get rid of the age old system that segregates the society groups such as the Adivasi’s and davits aka untouchables or even out caste are considered to be the lowest in the caste system and are excluded in many spheres of life.
