A girl in a government high school in a small village in Chhattisgarh says that she feels sad that she cannot take her best friend, who is from the same village, to her home. She says, ‘We sit together, study together and eat our lunch together in school.’ However, unlike some of her other friends who belong to the same caste as hers, her best friend is not allowed in her home because she belongs to a so-called lower caste. Her mother, who is also educated up to higher secondary, teaches her to view everyone as equal, however, the rest of the family thinks otherwise, and as a result, she cannot take her best friend home. If the girls were not in school, would they have got the opportunity to know each other, be friends with each other, or think differently from their families about caste and the superiority and inferiority associated with it?
