This is an extremely interesting piece that incisively homes in on the Achilles's heal of Indian democracy.
At the risk of confusing different concepts, I extend the view that the 'gratitude' that the lower caste workers felt towards the Marathas is similar to the sycophancy manifesting itself all the way at the the helm of the congress party. With this sort of selective bias, and captured democracy, true selection of mass up liftment policies is near impossible.

Out of curiosity, what effect does education have on this caste dominance - economic potency correlation?
And to the same ends - what about migration to cities? Surely in the cities they see a different picture?
