A film by Florence Martin Kessler

 Text Size  Increase Font Size   Decrease Font Size   divider Printable VersionPrintable Version

How can a society built entirely around the principle of inequality become democratic? India has implemented a policy of affirmative action for the members of the lower or "untouchable" caste, who represent more than half of the population: those who meet the policy's requirements will be employed as civil servants. THE CASTE STRUGGLE documents the results of this controversial policy, a legislative attempt to bring social and political change to India.
