System analysis essay 3: What do you know about India? Most of us are aware of India by its spices, authentic food, and different colors of culture traditions and so on. Moreover, India stands itself from rest of the word due to its diverse ethnic groups and culture. Even though, it comprises of thousands of these ethnic groups it acts as one. These larger pictures hide the flaws in it that is within these cultural system. Indian societies must seem a fun and colorful society to outsiders or foreigners. However, most of these societies follow old traditions and belief based on hierarchy and caste system that acts as reinforcing loop within society. We humans have evolved for thousands of years and have adapted in the modern world following the pace. But with these evolution some of the Indian societies still tend to follow old tradition that is unnecessary. According to Indian government every men and women must not be judged according to their race, ethnicity, gender, caste, creed, etc. Which rarely applies to some societies in India. Every human being has the right for justice, however, these right does not apply to orthodox Indian societies that act as an hierarchical society or person that pushes the a person based on their gender, caste, religion or rationality into a reinforcing feedback loops. The Indian society is based on different religious group in which Hindiusm comprise 80 percent all over India. This makes this religion on top of all the hierarchy. Entering this religion may sometime mean entering into caste system based on your family root. Usually, family names alone can act as your identity of which group in the caste system you belong. According to National Geographic article, Untouchables by Tom O'Neill describes caste system as a trait in which every Man is made unequal and are divided into five categories and among which achuta is the last one, meaning untouchable. These groups of people are banned to enter places that are occupied by higher caste group people. In this article a named Laxman Singh was almost beaten to death by some other higher caste group for purchasing a piece of land. These caste groups were created to discriminate a person by his/her work. This trait of discrimination is highly banned in India by the government.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
