Hindu Society - A Seamless Colourful Weave Of A Multidimensional Matrix

This course will help to understand and appreciate the seamless weave and matrix of Hindu Society.

Hindu Society is often derided using the terms Caste System, Rigidity, Orthodoxy, Brahminism, Untouchability, Suppression, Unscientific and Superstitious.

This course will start with laying out the fundamental differences between the foreign, undefined, Caste System thrust on Hindus and which continues to date vis-a-vis the native, ingenous and well thought out Varna-Jati system of the Hindus.

It then highlights other aspects which helped the Hindu society function in a cohesive manner to be one of the most productive, wealthy, knowledgeable and culturally rich society of the world.

It will then analyze what caused this cohesive, well oiled functioning to break down, thereby reducing it to a lopsided society with poverty, illiteracy, lack of hygiene, corruption etc. on end of the spectrum with the masses and wealth, education and power with a few on the other end of the spectrum.

It will also examine as to how an individual could be identified in a Hindu Society as also how he/she identified with the society. What were the framework and principles that ensured the functioning of the society without any internal clashes for millennia.

Finally, it will place forth the distortions that this society has become subject to, the reasons thereof and the narratives of the society in present days.
