Caste, while being one of the dominant socio-economic institutions in the Indian and Sri Lankan societies, is also one of the most complicated because of its multiple ramifications. Numerous scholars and researchers have made in-depth studies of the subject and their conclusions in turn have evoked further interest and queries on the subject.
In this study, Dr Selvy Thiruchandran, one of the founder members of Women’s Education and Research Centre in Colombo, examines the many different aspects of the caste system in Northern Sri Lanka, from the experiences of both the perpetrators and victims of this system, to anti-caste movements and their socio-political transformations.
