  1. Thats the real face of politicians. 
    But one is for sure, casteism is now old weapon for wooeing voters. because…public he ye sab jaanti he… 🙂

  2. funny how the whole nation of India was up in arms against the ‘racist’ Australians. cast system? i haven’t come across a bigger or worse kind of derogatory social system yet. a country where people are not allowed into houses, are not allowed to touch food meant for other caste-groups, crying foul over a few bashed-up (irritating in most cases) overseas students, mostly by petty crims – priceless.
