Dear Sri Prabhu Srinivas,

A wonderful example to prove that there is no hierarchy in caste by birth.
As you have said very correctly it is only the human ego which has created
it.

Another interesting point to note that will be, if we are to talk of
hierarchy, I would say that SudrAs take the top most place as they are born
out of the feet of Sriman nArAyaNa, under whose feet, the entire world take
refuge. For a true Sri Vaishnavite, the lotus feet of Sriman nArAyaNa is
the most important part.  That is why it is said that we should worship
emberumAn, starting from this thiruvadi to thirumudi, as shown by the great
ThiruppANAzhwAr.

AzhwAr emberumAnAr jeeyar thiruvadigaLE saraNam
adiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan
Thirumalai Vinjamoor Venkatesh
