No.2. Education is a double edged sword. It can be a panacea as well as a tool for the reproduction of social inequallity in India.

Hi Girija,

Thanks for responding. You're right about education not being an all-encompassing cure for social inequality in India. Do you see other, if any, public domains where such issues may be more effectively brought out and tackled?

Do keep writing and pass on this blog to your friends so we can get more views on these questions and others that have been posed on this blog.

Thanks again,

The Out-caste Team
