Social problems in India?

Social change in India refers to the alteration of the social order of the Indian society. The middle is becoming more powerful and therefore, they are participating more in social cause which is a good sign. Be it Swatch Bharat Abhiyan or participating in various NGO activities of their area. People today want over all development, not just in terms os salary! I recently witnessed a health camp organised by Ponty Chadha Foundation in one of the villages in Noida. I really like their initiative and the enthusiasm with which the youth participated and supported the cause.

How did caste rules affect the daily lives of Indians?

Hinduism contributed to India's two greatest features- political diversity and regionalism. The Guptas, for example, did not unify India's dialects into single language while China created a standard character system. During the Mauryan dynasty, India was under frequent attack by peoples on the northwestern mountain passes. As a result, classical India instead became a very well governed network of smaller kingdoms. The development of a rigid Hindu caste system lied at the heart of this stability. Separated into brahmins (priests), kshatriyas (warriors and aristocrats), vaishyas (cultivators, artisans, and merchants) and shudras (landless peasants and serfs), the caste system promoted tolerance, allowing widely different social classes to live peacefully next to each other, separated by social structure. Loyalty to caste superseded loyalty to any overall ruler. Moreover, Hinduism promised personal salvation, or in Hindu terms- moksha, to those who practiced the faith diligently.
