Sociology and Economics of Casteism in India: A Study of Bihar
Bihar Is One Of The Largest States Of India With Enormous Natural Resources And Vast Manpower. It Has A Glorious And Very Ancient History, Influencing The Course Of Developments And Events Not Only In India But The World At Large. Its Soil Is Fertile, People Hardworking, Rivers Flowing With Water Throughout The Year, Its Earth Full Of Valuable And Even Rare Minerals And The Climate Is Congenial, Yet Its Economy Has Been On The Decline And There Is Poverty Everywhere. Its Cities, Towns And Villages Unmistakably Give The Impression Of Its Continuous Sliding Down. It Is One Of The Most Backward States Of The Country. The Administrative Machinery Seems To Have Withered Away, There Is Anarchy And Chaos, Law And Order Does Not Seem To Exist, Criminalization Appears To Have Enveloped The State And Infrastructural Facilities Are In The Ruin. Land Reforms Have Failed To Proceed Further After The Abolition Of The Zamindari System. The Educational System Is Nothing But A Scandal And Corruption Is All Pervasive. Casteism Is The Reigning Ideology. This Book Looks Into The Present Plight Of Bihar On The Basis Of Facts, Figures And Records. It Goes Into History, Sociology, Economy And Politics Of The State Since The Establishment Od The British Raj. Such A Comprehensivestudy, We Believe, Has Been Attempted For The First Time.
