By Kannan on April 14, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I read this book during my flight back from UK. An excellent research work by Sridhar about Indian social system. What intrigued me is the economic cost of the social structure in india, especially the caste systems. Some of her ideas are extremely insightful.
