Does anybody know, it that caste system is still going?
Or is it a thing of the past?

Mel

hi mel. i have to watch out what i say (for the oversensitive souls out here). but the caste system in India is still present. not as much as in the past but its still there. especially in rural areas its common. also the dalits (or untouchables) are still excisting. they still have less rights and do the filthy work (mostly clean toilets and pick up garbage). in very strict societies a dalit shadow may not even come over the food of a brahman (highest caste). if that happens the food is not "clean" anymore and should be throwed away.

Would u know a site on the internet, that gives information, about the caste system?

Although my name is not Wouter, I have found this for an example.

When I finish reading about what is happening in Burma, I will start reading about the caste system in India. It is incredible what is going on, in the world.

Not so sure about that. Everything seems to be so complicated. It seems impossible to understand all that is going on.

Tell Utrecht, by PM, about your toilet activities.
;)

i don't do it via PM. everyone may know about my toiletactivities. um...the first time i went to india i spend quite a lot at the toilet. even had to go to a hospital twice (in delhi and jodhpur), for having stomic bacteria (i was totally dryed out). i was very irresponsible for myself. i ate anything. last year i went for 6 months to India again and did it a little different. didn't eat any meat nor fish. fish is dangerous in india (no good experience with gamba's). that worked big time. didn't got sick one time.
