It is a great privilege and honour for me to be an Indian and simultaneously a Hindu and how lucky I am to have such a vast treasure house of sacred scriptures to imbibe great human values and if possible to attain Vishnupadam or an status free from all shackles, prejudices, differences imposed by the world due to our wrong perception. It is due to the sacred and vibrant thought waves generated by the great Indian sages that a Hindu can strive for enlightenment to the extent of attaining Brahmanhood and claim himself as creator or Brahma himself. This is called Hindu Samskruti. Hindu Samskruti is like water, you can drink from an stream, you can drink from a well, you can drink from a river and at last when you reach the highest level of refinement of mind, you become like an ocean and then there is nothing to drink or to know and you alone remains, glowing like bliss itself. Such is an exalted picture portrayed and experienced by some lucky persons while living within the ambit of great religion called Sanatan Dharma or Hindu Dharma. Sir, in such a background and your vivid description of great Hindu Samskruti, I am also compelled to mention a great drawback of Hindu Samskruti- caste system or Varnashrama. For whatever purpose it was established in the ages back, what is the rationale now to stick to it. Even people adopt profession of their choice, aptitude and capability and not according to Varnashrama Dharma at all. When you glance at a completely strange Indian, can you recognize his caste, the moment you come to know his caste, just then a difference crops up, why do a few intercaste marriages happen in our country and why are their honour killings in the name of this bewildering notion called caste. You are such an intelligent soul, I expect a thorough and intelligent probe on your part on this delicate and very important aspect. In my view, like slavery chapter in the west, this caste chapter is to be closed by all right thinking Indians even if at the cost of caste reservations, at last caste reservations has to be replaced by a more rational system that is reservation based on economic criterion. As you are such a deep thinker and a prolific writer, it would be of immense benefit if you pour out your heart in this aspect of Hindu Samskruti. With all regards.
