This is an open space for any member of the public to discuss the relationship between caste identity and mind. Please share your comments, ideas, suggestions, and future research questions on the broad theme of this project. We are aware that caste related distress in pervasive and often disabling. You could also share your personal experience which we will keep strictly confidential unless we have your explicit permission to reveal your identity. This may also help us plan how best to help you. Please note we do not endorse the idea that caste related distress is a mental illness. Our view is that this is a social pathology that has profound impact on both victims and perpetrators and could lead to severe cultural psychological distress.
