My post in another column:
We need to deflect Hinduism from Brahmin-centric viewpoint. This has been done effectively by the invaders and the local political meddlers. If Brahmins are caricatured, so be it. It can't hurt them. Ignoring it is the fit repartee. Let us take the values which might have helped Brahmin ascendancy in the social hierarchy to a wider population. It is not true that it happened by sheer machination. Education, enquiry and intellectual integrity must have been at the base of the distinction. We need to abstract such values and make non-political and intensive efforts to let them percolate in the society non-discriminatively. That is what could make our society stand on its own. As of now, we do not count.
