A Mahabharat tale - The Brahmin and the Butcher (GP for Alka Narula)

Back in the Padmasan and again pontificating on the wisdom of the sages of yore. Alka Narula is again hosting me on her blog. And the exposition is still about the surprising attitudes in our epics towards caste discrimination and, indeed, about how the caste of a person is to be determined.

This is a tale of how a Brahmin learned from a Butcher. You can read it here - The Brahmin and the Butcher


  1. That was a nice story, well narrated.

  2. Nice story indeed. Only if the religious Gurus would have that much maturity and wisdom to understand this basis of caste system.

    1. Even the book "The Immortals of Meluha " written by Amish,which I read quite recently ,tells that birth does not determine one's caste..This is the first time I have read this excellent piece...Thanks Suresh..
