If the global economy is improving, then it is good news for urbanization in India. If the Indian economy improves, then the cities will grow further and attract more migrants from rural India to urban India for a better life.

India is NOT disintegrating, but integrating through URBANIZATION. The rural sector is de-populating and the urban sector is populating.
There is a difference between rural India and urban India. There is also a difference between rural Hinduism and urban Hinduism. In rural India, everybody knows everybody's caste and try to lead caste conscious and segregated lives. In the village, castes are more segregated because sometimes different castes sometimes live in different parts of the same village. Urban India is different.

In urban India, the cities are crowded with people. It is hard for city dwellers to know the caste of everybody else in cities. In cities if you sell umbrellas, then you sell to anybody who buys, not just to people of your own caste. In cities if you buy tea, you buy from anybody who sells tea, not just from somebody of your own caste. If you board a bus, you just sit beside anybody, not just somebody of your own caste. In fact, the cities are so crowded that you are lucky if you can find a seat in the bus or train. The cities are so crowded that all castes are forced to interact with each other daily. Segregation along caste lines may be possible in villages, but impractical in cities. Caste segregation will break down in cities where the life is fast and crowded; but caste segregation can be preserved in slow moving villages.

Caste means community. Different castes means different communities. Hindu people prefer to marry someone of their own caste. It means that Hindu people prefer to marry someone of their own community. To marry someone of your own community is your human right, which should not be questioned. When someone engages in intra-caste marriage, you please keep your comments to your self and mind your own business.

Any way, it is very hard to maintain caste consciousness in cities as compared to villages. Cities are too fast and crowded to maintain caste consciousness. India is urbanizing rapidly.

The caste system is well documented in Hindu scriptures, but the Hindu people almost never bothered to read the Hindu scriptures. With the changing times, Hinduism will not die. On the contrary, rural Hinduism will re-invent itself and emerge as urban Hinduism. Hinduism is morphing under urbanization. There is a difference between rural Hinduism and urban Hinduism. There are two India's in this country, rural and urban. While the world is not watching, people in India are moving from one side to the other side. While the world is not watching, people are moving from rural side to the urban side. Unknown to the world, urban India is becoming more dominant socially, politically, and economically. Unknown to the world, rural Hinduism is transforming into urban Hinduism. Amitabh Bachchan is right. It is a case of India vs. India. It is a case of urban vs. rural.

It does not matter how Hinduism was explained in the scriptures. We have to see the ground realities. But we have to change with the times. Evolution. There is good news. Urbanization will bring changes to Hinduism. Currently, almost 70% of Indians live in rural India, while 30% live in urban India. In developed nations like USA, Europe, and Japan, the majority live in cities. Currently, India and China are undergoing what USA went through about a 100 years ago: URBANIZATION.
