Caste Consciousness among Indian Tamils in Malaysia (Paperback)
AuthorRajakrishnan Ramasamy
TypeSoft Cover
Caste is an important social institution among Indians to the extent that it determines social interactions, commensal relations and marriage contractions between individuals. The Indians who emigrated to Malaya in the 19th and early 20th centuries brought along with them this institution. Though the institution has undergone inevitable changes over the period of more than a century since the earliest migration, some of the essential characteristics of caste have still been maintained. This book represents a well-researched and analytical account of caste consciousness among Malaysian Indian Tamils.
