Abstract

There has been a long debate in the literature over whether the caste system is a unique social phenomenon or simply one manifestation of processes of social stratification which have a wider generality. New divisions and differentiations have been giving rise to new antagonism and social norms. Caste is not today what it was before 1950; and it has not become completely class or replica of it in Nepal.
