I have been reading Prof Marc Galanter’s online work about OBCs, law and caste in India, and about Competing Equalities in general. I just wanted to share this excellent resource with all.

While we are reading – here is another resource for you.

A symposium called india-seminar conducted in 2005 called “Redressing Disadvantages” . It has links to a lot of material on this subject.

Every social scientist as well as government agencies themselves (NCBC and Planning Commission) have pointed out that lack of even basic data about OBC castes make it hard to judge their effectiveness or assess their real backwardness.

    This is often a very good blog page. I have already been back several times over the past 7-day period and wish to sign up for your feed utilizing Google but find it difficult to learn the right way to do it accurately. Do you know of any sort of tutorials?
