LISW, so you woken up, why so late into the Topic? So, you sitting in armchair give us those negative icons? you been a naughty girl?<quoted text>I'm really glad you decided to be a real person here Clementia. It sure would help to improve the discourse if we all were. I believe I understand what you're saying but only because I took the time to listen to an older man who had immigrated here. He was Penjabi and spoke like you about identity. He was obligated to marry his brother's wife after he died and though he cared a great deal for her and was one of the kindest men I've ever known he grieved that the match did not make for happiness. he was extremely well educated and spoke several languages. She was not someone he could talk to about all the things he cared about.
Now having said that we certainly do talk about class in the west (don't use the word caste)Have you not been paying attention to what Obama is trying to do?
