The emphasis here will be on the increasing rigidities of the so-called pollution barrier, by which is meant the formalisation of social barriers separating those of superior caste from the lowest or most unclean and inauspicious caste groups, in circumstances of growing con¯ict in both town and countryside, in the period before the First World War. Turning next to the power and resources of the twentieth-century Indian state, Chapters 6 and 7 focus on the electoral arena and the impact of modern political institutions on the experience of caste, ®rst in the late colonial era, and then in the period since Independence.

This key principle of `caste Hindu' thought is usually understood as the code of duty, religious law and right human conduct which de®nes the path to virtue and spiritual ful®lment for all humankind. In the Institutes of Manu, the source of this dharma is the will of the divine creator who gave each of the four human archetypes or varnas a distinct moral quality, and a calling to follow. 14 All wellbeing and merit, indeed the preservation of the entire created universe, depend upon this strati®ed ordering of castes.
