Caste is used to put people in place and it has immense impact on the lives of people. The popular notion that the caste came on its own is wrong as there was conscious attempt over thousands of years to divide people in order to retain social and economic dominance. If one looks from above, one will understand that caste originates from a personal madness which at times transforms into a social madness, a paranoia produced by the forces of Power. The caste equation is a necessary evil for all political parties in India so that they can prosper at the cost of this hatred for each other which will translate into votes.
All the so called Dalits are not Dalits, i.e. all people who have SC/ST reservation are not Dalits. SC/ST people can be divided into two categories Dalit SC/ST and Non-Dalit SC/ST, but politically all people who have SC/ST reservation are considered Dalits, however socially all people with SC/ST reservation are not Dalits. Originally untouchables were termed as Harijan and Dalits. But with time the term Dalit expanded its fold and started covering many non-Dalit castes as well. There are two types of Dalits, the untouchable Dalits and the non-untouchable dalits.
Why did Dalits become untouchables or outcasts? The Answer is eating of cows!
आरे गोहा नर्हा वधो वो अस्तु सुम्नेभिरस्मे वसवो नमध्वम | Rigveda - 7.56.17
One must not Kill the cows, cow is the most scared animal and for prosperity it should be protected, cared and tend to.
The reason why Dalits became outcasts is only because of slaughter of cows and eating cows. Before the Mughal Invasion of India, except for the Dalits there was no one in India who who killed or ate cows. Dalits were the people who must have migrated from somewhere entered India and would have started slaughtering the cows and eating cows.
