      A Family and a War
      Laxmi Pathak

      *Creation of a casteless and peaceful society is indeed the first step
      towards just, egalitarian, and harmonious society. A society of equals,
      neither unequal nor more-equals, beyond the strings of caste, class, gender,
      race, ethnicity, etc. Otherwise it leads to social oppression, political
      exploitation, economic deprivation, cultural domination, gender
      discrimination, class isolation, deliberate exclusion. Lets’ believe in a
      society beyond this....*
