G.S. Ghurye on caste and race

Dear student

He believed that the upper castes being Aryan and lower castes being non-Aryan was true only for north India. He further said that the prohibition of intermixing of different castes was only limited to northern India, and people in other areas had been mixing for a long time.
In the context of races, he believed that racial purity was somehow preserved only in the very North India while the rest of the parts adopted practices like endogamy only after variations had occurred in racial groups.
