The future of Caste System in India

It is not possible to predict about the future of caste system in India. But as Prof. M.N. Srinivas says: Caste system is an organic part of Hindu social organization, so not becomes difficult to imagine the existence of Hindu Society, without caste. But in the opinion of the other scholars like Ghurye, as caste has its significance therefore this system should not continue further. In present day society because of industrialization, urbanization, modern education system, modern means of transport and communication, remarkable changes have been experienced in features of caste system, such as occupation, marriage, food, drink, social intercourse etc. But at the same time there are some factors like emergence of political parties, method of election, constitutional provision for S.C., S.T. and other backward classes have gradually encouraged the problem of casteism in India.
