Book review on “Caste as Social Capital: The Complex Place of Caste in Indian Society” by Ramachandran Vaidyanathan

If anyone understands the term social capital, then he definitely knows that caste is also a social capital.

The Indian Village Potter 

"To the Indian land and village system we owe altogether the hereditary cunning of the Hindu handicraftsman. It has created for him simple plenty, and a scheme of democratic life, in which all are co-ordinate parts of one undivided and indivisible whole, the provision and respect due to every man in it being enforced under the highest religious sanctions, and every calling perpetuated from father to son by those cardinal obligations on which the whole hierarchy of Hinduism hinges"- by Sir George Birdwood
