This book is a collection of articles originally written for a weekly devoted to social reform, and published from Madras in the early 1920’s. The work is a sharp criticism of the caste system, and places it arguments and observations in a logical and neutral manner. Starting with the origins of the caste system, it traces its progress through the ages; there are mentions of the Mahabharata and the Ramayan, Buddhism, Hinduism under Muslim rule, Mughal persecution, etc.
