Human Being's Reaction to Oppression As the evolutionists say, all of us have a survivalist instinct in us. We do anything to get food. Extending that instinct to the propagation of genes, we do odd things for sex too. And when society is brought in, social dignity is desired by all of us - almost at any cost. The concept of secrecy that is diluted to privacy which maintains our prestige is there, for all of us to see! When people are suppressed, nearly all of these instincts are hampered. And when that happens, people resent and oppose the oppressors. But then, we are very complex animals and are not easily understood. The guiding principle, however, is 'man is what he thinks'. If we are lead to believe that whatever is done to our folks is right, then, we tend not to do much against it. This is the reason why the faithful blame the ideology and the atheists blame the faiths. Painful life just continues. For example, many Indians did not bother about the British Raj till they were enticed, and French peasants were exploited for centuries till the time of the French Revolution. However, it is said that you can fool some people for some time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. That is, probably, why there have been many minor and major revolutions in the world, even since man evolved beyond the monkeys - borrowing knowledge from the evolutionist of course. The Indian Caste Exploitation - All Ingredients For a Revolution But then, almost like the Muslim's surprise of not Islamicism India like Persia or Egypt despite centuries of Muslim rule in India, or the Christian's surprise of managing less than 2% of converts despite slicing almost half the Muslim's time there, India offers a 3rd surprise in its caste system. With it having high caste oppressing lower caste and practicing heinous untouchability, later ones being confined to their poor, unhealthy areas and misbehaved upon, and the rich Indologists constantly blaming Brahmanism and using the term Brahminical exploitation India had almost every ingredient for a revolution by the oppressed. Furthermore, there was no reason to believe that Indians were any different to the French or the Americans, who revolted against their oppressors. More importantly, these exploitations have been going on since God knows for how long? Several millennia. If nothing else, why not something like a reformation movement against the powerful Catholic Church? Despite all that, all these centuries India showed no sign of a social revolution by the oppressed. While this is a major surprise, Indologists being busy with blaming Brahmanism (their thoughts ended there) but not even asking the question, 'Why there was no revolution?', is not less surprising. Yes, the obvious oppression is screamed about and despite all Indians projecting a united gene pool, 'Dalits' are made to replace the Dravidians in the AIT scheme of things. Even their origins in Africa are dragged in to explain the oppression. But, this is possibly the first time, when the reason behind the lack of a social revolution is questioned. And matching the surprise aired above, even answered. But then, before we understand the caste system and blame Hinduism, we need to understand Hinduism sanctioned Varna system. The Hindu Varna System: With us having a different race, gender, anatomy, an accident of birth and abilities, and varying even individually, whatever the communists might make us believe, we are not equal. We can only aspire for equal opportunity for all. But then, even when that is offered our aptitude can make us leave home for the search of God. It is for this reason; Hinduism divides humanity into two groups: 1. Grihastha, the family group. 2. Sadhus, the hermit group, who leave family and seek God. While, reminding class struggle, the rest of the world saw society economically (financially and numerically) dividing people into 3 uneasy groups - upper, middle and lower classes - a system that is still adhered to in the UK, numerically adding one more yet seeing them as power centres and seeking a team work to produce a harmonious and progressive society, Hindu Varna system sought the coordination of 4 social powers - the Varnas. The Varnas included the Brahmans (teachers), the Kshatriyas (rulers and defenders), the Vaisyas (traders and farmers) and the Sudras (the helping masses). These are not just arbitrary group names, but each has an inherent power (not necessarily economic) attached. For example, Brahman has the power of knowledge, the Kshatriya has of authority, the Vaisya has of wealth (who can forget the influence of Mr. Murdock on UK politics) and the Sudras have the power of the numbers (Who can forget trade unions?). Consequently, while it makes a healthy body symbolise the society, not forgetting the function and the inherent Varna power, it designates body parts to each Varna Rigvedic Purusha Sukta (RV 10.90.11–12). Thus, head/ brain represents the Brahman, arms the Kshatriya, torso or tummy the Vaisya and the legs as support represent the Sudras.
