Therefore, the eighteenth century has an added importance for the study of caste among the Sikhs. A number of scholars have touched upon the subject of caste from different perspectives, but none of them has written exclusively on the issue of caste among t
  5. Disclaimer: The Caste Hierarchy cannot actually be explained away since its very complex. However I will attempt it anyway. Hopefully this sheds some light on the what's going on with the caste system. Jaikaara You can not erase the caste hierarchy. It is here to stay. Is a guru at the same level as his sikh? I don't think so. People are different, have different capabilities, interests, etc. Some fortunate others not so much, different environments. The list goes on, what it leads to are hierarchies.
