    Untill the abolition of caste system and discrimination based on gender and religious community there is no chance of victory of class struggle, in whatever form. And this book will help those people who are trying to build up a real democratic India free from caste discrimination and caste division. This results in the assumption that we live in a casteless society. We assume that, we the urbanized dominant castes, do not have any relation to caste-based discrimination that may still be persistent supposedly only in rural areas. But we fail to realise that our actions, thoughts, and behaviours perpetuate caste inequality day in and day out.
