Abstract:- On this planate, the Hindu religion is unique religion which categorized the human beings on the basis of birth. This categorization is generally known as caste system not to be eliminated at any time during his or her life time. Untouchabilty is basically not a caste its status which is given to the people who are associated to the menial jobs. It is used to indicate that untouchability is imposed by others, not a result of inherent pollution. It is also used to include all the deprived and oppressed of India.
Overall, Rukmani suffered a great deal from the tannery by losing three sons to it. The caste system has been in India’s culture for a long amount of time. It is still around in India because people’s minds will not change about it. This practice has had effects on people, but growing up in a certain caste people believe it is right and just. Even people who are peasants think that is okay and do not desire to be in a higher caste, treated with respect.
The lowest rank is the Untouchables, which are typically outcasts and frequently experience brutal assault and widespread discrimination. It impacts the social, economic and culture of India. The caste system allows high social status individuals to control and abuse the
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.
The caste system in India affects not only the stratification of people in the society it also affects them economically. Dalits or the so called ‘untouchables’ are at the bottom of the social pecking order while the Brahmins are supposed to be at the top of this social order. Due to their position in the social hierarchy the Dalits have been a target of social discrimination. There are considered unworthy and have limited means of earning their livelihood, hence they are forced to do menial jobs to earn a living, they are given work that is considered disreputable and discreditable by the so called Upper Caste. Due to their position in social hierarchy they have to undergo many forms of social and communal bias.
Also caste system made a big trouble between different level people and brought something unfair. In ancient India, Caste system made the ancient India society orderly. The caste system as enforced with the help of law books such as Manusmriti and the support of kings who considered themselves as upholders of dharma. Caste system emphasize to human that everyone need to follow the high level human. No one can replace the ruler is a traditional opinion in ancient Indian’s brain.
It also shows a flawed understanding and judgement of filmmakers about the regional audience. Many directors are still under the belief that Indian audience are not yet ready for no-nonsense films and this film is a case in point. Thozha could have been a better film had director had avoided unwarranted distractions in the narration. Vamsi has tried to retain most of the originality of the film, including properties used in The Intouchables. For instance, the luxury bedroom provided to Diss at Philippe 's mansion is replicated in the Tamil remake to every
They are considered as the lowest as well as the largest caste. Generally, they work as slaves or practitioners of unskilled trading. Despite the fact that they are not considered the dalit or untouchables, they still face a great deal of discrimination from the higher castes. As a slave, they often work as cobblers, blacksmiths, maids, cooks, and many other works. But hence their low respect, they are an important contribution to the Indian society.
The classification on the basis of caste into which a person is born has been followed since ages and continues to be followed till age. The caste to which an individual belongs to affects various situations at different point of time in an individual’s life. Therefore it would not be wrong to say that significance of caste system has not been restricted in any ways in the Indian society. It would not be wrong to say that caste system in diverse society such as that of India is useful. Firstly, the caste system provides a fixed social milieu to an individual member of a caste from birth, which neither wealth nor poverty, success nor disaster can take away from him.
In this research paper, I have tried to highlight the historical perspective of Dalit Literature with minute details. As we know that untouchability is one of the greatest evils of Indian society since the inception of the civilization. In the Manu Smriti, the Hindu's law book of social code, one can observe the tragic picture who were deprived of many rights especially their banning of entry into the temples or reading the Hindu scriptures as the traditional Indian society was brahmanical. That is why the great social reformers of India like Mahatma Gandhi, B. R. Ambedkar, Tagore and Swami Dayanand etc. raised their voice of protest against this age-old injustice and discrimination.
