Read Time:21 Second

By Yalavarthi Naveen Babu

Using the more dynamic conception of jati as opposed to a static Western understanding of ‘caste,’ Naveen Babu traces its history in the social, cultural and economic aspects of the formation of ‘Varna into jati’ from the Rg-Vedic period to the end of 20th century. He demonstrates how these changes were grounded into the changing modes of production and its accompanying social formation.
