On Practicing Caste | Economic and Political Weekly

Rejecting the politics of identity and victimhood, Practicing Caste articulates the politics of radical narcissism of a “just us” that tries to disinherit the knowledge on caste received from the classical Sanskrit texts, philosophy, sociology and anthropology. It strives to dispossess itself of caste as a marker of injustice in India. It presents a tropology that studies caste as the regulation of touch/untouch, pitching it at the level of intelligibility of the assembly language of computers that does not presuppose anything like a meaningful social whole.
