Book Description

First published in 1932, Indian Caste Customs is an explication on how caste system operates in everyday life. What are its injunctions and prohibitions? What actions constitute offences against its moral law and social honour? What are the means by which breaches of that code are adjudicated? What are the penalties inflicted on offenders? The book attempts to answer these questions as well as discuss the merits and demerits of the caste system in India. This book will be of interest to students of history, sociology, anthropology and South Asian studies.
