"GENDER ROLES AND CASTE EFFECTS IN INDIAN SOCIAL SET-UP"
SAMHITA CHAUDHURI & PRADIP CHOUHAN
From the ancient through colonial and up to the contemporary age, the in egalitarian nature of Indian caste system towards the Dalits and women is a common feature. Social scientists have extensively analyzed the situation of Dalits and women in Brahmanical Hinduism. In recent years various caste-based reservation Acts and agitations against such Acts mainly in educational sector and job sector particularly in urban areas display a very high level of caste consciousness of urban India. Thus, from ancient period, caste remains a powerful and potent force in Indian society which shapes the social, economic and political development of the country. Caste system not only determines the social division of labour, but it influences the gender-based differences also. Thus a question arises, is there a relationship between caste status, caste hierarchy and womanhood?
In this book, an attempt has been made to know the roles played by males and females on the Social set-up of India. As caste-based division of labour is manifested in every field of Indian society, thus an attempt to assess the effects of caste status has also been made in this book.
Research papers are invited to contribute in this book on the following sub-themes-
1. Gender roles in Indian Society and Culture

3. Relationship between Caste system and Gender roles in Indian Society and Culture
4. Gender-Caste relationship and Human Resource Development in India
