Whenever people in America and elsewhere outside of India hear anything about the Indian caste system, they show a great contempt, even to disgust, in their attitude towards this ancient institution which has been instrumental, to a very large degree in moulding the destinies of India up to this day. To a casual observer this institution is but "a monster custom" (Low, S., Vision of India, p. 260) which saps the character of people leaving them degenerate in their own group and degraded in the modern world. He condemns it from every angle, scorns and abhors those who follow it, and often is very intolerant.
