Social Mobility and Caste Violence-A Study of the Gujarat Riots

A Study of the Gujarat Riots Pradip Kumar Bose This paper examines certain structural aspects of the present caste riots in Gujarat. It argues that the caste and geographical spread of the violence is closely related to the social mobility of the affected scheduled caste population, Taking literacy, education and employment as indicators of social mobility, and scheduled caste concentration in a particular area as a factor inducing hostility, the paper shows how it is precisely those sections of the scheduled castes who are relatively better educated, more mobile and have some access to jobs thathave been most seriously affected by the present caste riots; similarly; the areas thus affected also show a relative concentration of the scheduled castes.

Stratification among Tribals in Gujarat

Stratification among Tribals in Gujarat Pradip Kumar Bose The tribes in Gujarat today are equally affected by the processes of planned and unplanned change and by the continuous structural and institutional shifts in rural India. They are stratified in terms of control over resources. Furthermore, during the process of industrialisation, major alterations in the pattern of stratification are inescapable. Old resources acquire a new significance, and new resources are to be managed and controlled effectively to survive in the severe competition over the control over resources. In this, tribes cannot remain isolated any longer and changing stratification is consequently appropriate for the study of tribes.
