Just go for a Sikh guy. We're better, anyway.(Original post by bieberfever)
Ok long story short; I'm a Sikh and my boyfriend is Hindu, he's 20 and I'm 21. Obviously we want to be together but he says his family are strict when it comes to marrying out of caste and religion so he suggested we break up before it becomes even harder. I completely understand but i know that we both know this isn't a childish crush, and now I don't know what to do...

Ah, so the caste system is not of the Hindu religion in origin?
Where does 'Jaati' come from, then?
Not too sure on Jaati, but I think it's something that sprang up naturally. Like, back when it was a feudal society, it was a way for the average person to identify with clan/community/tribe. I guess all ancient societies around the world had that, but because it somehow got mixed with religion, so it remained entrenched, divisive and hierarchical despite the fact that the rest of the world moved on (in some form or other).

Yeah I completely agree, all parts are needed for a whole. Personally, I know the same but I'm talking about the mpst popular belief/practices. I come from a mixed family, not Hindu myself but my uncles/cousins are. But just as in modern capitalism, for society to function in a hierarchy, there are people who lose out, of course it would be taken for the base level to be less important by modern day Hindus. In the OPs situation, the parents wouldn't be following this logic, the majority of practicing Hindus that I know at least tend to follow the superior/inferior standard. And again, this is apparent in society not just debating over the origin - it still happens and many believe its just. The opinion that everyone is equal, as far as I can see, is not the opinion of the majority of Hindus, wrong though it may be.
My logic isn't that the brain is more important; that's the most common interpretation, which I disagree with.
