From our gorgeous temples, to our delicious cuisines, all the way to our ancient art forms, us Desi-Americans have imported and preserved many aspects of our rich culture. Unfortunately, even from thousands of miles away, we also actively uphold the caste system. Although many South Asians claim to be far removed from the caste system, it is evident that it still affects us in many ways. Whether it be friendships, relationships, religion, or even community building, caste continues to divide us. In this episode, we are joined by our friends, Vivek Gudipati and Rahul Bulusu, to talk about the origins of caste and how it continues to be a part of our lives. We believe conversations like this one are the first steps towards eliminating caste and rebuilding our community for the better.
