How does the persistance of caste despite the illegality of it affect indian's socially?
Even though castes became illegal in india, the importantes of it from so long ago carried the legacy to modern day india ans its stuck with them. Indians can be over privileged or under privileged and those who are underprivileged have been deeply affected for a long time. After the UN meeting there was finally a national quota system where every job must have a certain amount of certain types of people and this allowed underppriviliged indias to still be able to get good jobs.
Although this problem wasn't completely resolved it was fixed and gave the underprivileged something to work with.
