Caste restricts opportunity. Restricted opportunity constricts ability. Constricted ability further restricts opportunity.

long ago, a friend's marriage was arranged by a political party. this is how it happened: he was a card carrying member of one of the communist partes and the immediate leadership found a progressive match for him in a fellow member of the party. my friend was a brahmin, a kannadiga, and employed in a bank. the girl was a kamma, a telugu, and a doctor of some kind. my friend didn't find anything restrictive in the party finding a suitable girl for him. in fact, he was very proud of the fact that he'd defied his father and married a girl of a lower varna.
yes, that's what he said: a girl of a lower varna.
