No one is denying that there is casteism all around us. Your posts often reek of it. The argument is if we, the "informed elite" group that we are, should make an effort to contain/purge it from our midst.harimau wrote: ↑13 Jul 2018, 21:33Ok, here is an example of casteism for you.
I was having a conversation with a descendant of a famous nagaswaram vidvan (of the Isai Vellalar caste) and happened to mention the name of a well-known nagaswaram vidvan and the reaction was, "He belongs to the barber caste"!
So there are a whole lot of people who believe that certain occupations such as playing the nagaswaram belongs only to one caste and anybody else playing the nagaswaram is attempting to usurp their (Isai Vellalar's) position in the caste hierarchy.
I am afraid of rasikas becoming a cesspool of casteist insults and accusations.
