Hindus/Hindus and poverty
With the caste system and untouchables, I wonder how Hindus address the topic of poverty. Please help me understand.
Caste system is disappearing very fast everywhere except in rural pockets in India. Increasing awareness and media made a big difference in recent past. However it still exists and will take many years to get rid of it.
Poverty is another issue and not always linked to caste system.
With 100 days employment scheme, the poor in rural India got a big relief.
What has not been achieved in the first 55 years of Independence, has been attained in the last ten years in helping the poor.
Hope that helps in your understanding
