What is your experience with the caste system in india? Does it still affect day to day life? Is it something you think about when you meet strangers?

Having been born and brought up in India (and I still live here), I've never ever had any problems with the so called caste system. In fact it never really crossed my mind until I read about it in the newspapers. So for the present generation at least it is as good as non existent. I didn't even know that a few of my friends were OBC's until this reservation issue flared up... so its nothing that one should worry about (unless you are a politician hungry for votes)

I had heard that things were changing for the new generation. I'm an American, so I didn't know first hand. What are OBC's? I think I can figure it out, but I'll ask just the same. Does knowing that change in any way how you feel about them? Do your parents think more about social status?

caste system do exist all around the world.... this caste thingy has got into the blood of everyone.... frankly speaking people dont want to change.... i will say rich peple are rich people and the poor ones are the poor ones.... i'm not talking about the arrogant rich people whom we seen in our cinemas.... but i'm talking practically which happens in everyday life.... the poor people doesnt want to change themselve.... they behave as if they're struggling to come up in life, but indeed they dont but they cheat people.... they're the people who are after money.... they be your friends until you're there in their needs list.... once they find the work is done, they cheat you and cheat you to core.... this kind of cheap attitude still resides in their brain... no matter how much they're educated, no matter how much ever salary they're earning.... cheap people.... this is only my personal experience and not to offend the entire people or particular society....
