Social and political Values and Systems in India.

Caste as an organisation

 Caste as a system has all the essentials of a good organization for its smooth functioning, which are as following  –
  • Structure – ‘Principle of Varna’ has provided caste system a stable, sustainable social structure. 

  • Satisfaction – Caste system has capacity to satisfy all biological as well as psychological needs of its members as an individual and as a group.

  • Division of labour – Doctrine of Dharma defines duties and vocations for different sections of society, leading to “division of labor” and de-centralization of control systems. The system has ensured functioning of diverse functions and avoided confusion. 

  • Specialisation – Caste system has prepared an atmosphere for specialisation.

  • Balancing various activities – In caste-system no activity is over-valued or under-valued.

  • Team spirit – The traits of inter-dependence, mutual respect, trust and tolerance in caste system has created team-spirit and an atmosphere for better functioning of diverse functions, their coordination, optimal utilisation of resources and facilitates all its members live in peace and to prosper. 

Caste system as a social organisation managed daily necessities and day to day relations of its members. At its best, the caste system had wisely directed all the activities – social, political, intellectual or economic – into proper life functions and controlled its malfunctioning.

 The system of each caste having a specific position in the society and a specific work to do with its rights and duties led the people to have quality of life and promoted social equilibrium and solidarity.
