A REVIEW ON CASTE DYNAMICS AND ITS INFLUENCE ON HIGHER EDUCATION.
Research Scholar , Osmania university
Caste dynamics, for whatever function they serve, whether beneficial or harmful, have a little influence in contemporary society. In India, the dynamics of caste are referred to as "discrimination." What would be the ramifications of a society devoid of them? If we were to see it today, in the current situation, it would be more evolved. The caste dynamics of a society may be performed by upper groups who have a high level of social status, educational awareness, and group dynamics if there are no indifferences between them. The poor, on the other hand, must assert their social standing. One of the reasons caste has piqued sociological interest is because it is considered as a symbol of pure rank, founded on religious and ideological grounds (Milner 1994; Dumont 1980; Weber 1958), with class disparities being epiphenomenal to caste (Milner 1994; Dumont 1980; Weber 1958). The Indian caste system has a "sociological" feature that distinguishes it from other kinds of social inequality based on material resources because of this separation of the holy and profane. Weber defines the caste system â€“ as opposed to affinity groups â€“ in terms that have underpinned most of the sociological debate on caste. The systematic review was done on literature on how the caste dynamics were influencing the education system and studentâ€™s, from the different papers published in different journals in the year 2012. However, the evidence offered above suggests that this is an over simplification. Caste continues to be linked to access to productive resources, notably education and skills. In comparison to children from higher castes, children from lower castes continue to be educationally disadvantaged. Caste in contemporary India, if stripped of its religious and ideological tropes, is one of the most remarkable instances of the concentration of material riches in the hands of a few people while market forces continue to gain root.
