3000 years ago, one of the richest and most evolved civilizations in a region had developed which we now call as a country called India. About 400 years ago is when each of the many kingdoms of this region were captured and controlled by invaders till about 1947. 63 years ago, which is less than an average lifespan is when India as a country was born. With an old hierarchical history, India bravely embraced socialist democracy which is quite opposite to the caste system in that it equates each one of its citizen as one respected entity. What is happening since independence till now is a merger between the old caste system and the equal respect for all democracy. This means that the citizens have to accept and live with some compromises in their religion or in democracy for the overall good of its citizens.
