Dear Sri venkat,

There is a nice series of posts from our Sri Anand Karalapakkam in July 98
and also from Sri Sadagopan. These posts will answer to a great extent (y)
our doubts on Caste.

However, that does not preclude us from raising further queries. Please pour
in your questions. I definitely learn a lot by reading not only the answers;
also from the questions.
NamO Narayana
