- Topic chosen to illustrate: INDIA IN THE MOVE

- I decided to answer to the question: Are all the Indian citizens on a equal footing ?

- I'm gonna develop two parts : first we will see the inequalities between the citizens and then the inequalities between man and woman

- Inequalities between citizens.

- Let's begin with the inequalities between the citizens

- India is divided into four unequal, hereditary, social castes, making up the caste system. If someone was born into one of these castes, they can’t change or marry someone belonging to another one. We study the exemple of dalits. This is an other group which is called an outcaste because they are not considered as a normal caste. They are also known as Untouchables because people from other caste are not allowed to touch them. This is the lowest caste of the indian society. Indeed Dalits are only allowed to practice certain jobs such as cleaners or cobblers.

- Even though the cast system is forbidden, it still exists in rural areas. The discrimination against Dalits still exists. Indeed, they are forced to use specific eating places, schools, temples and water sources.

- Today, there are 170 million Dalits in India and over 40% survive with less than 2 dollars a day.

- It’s the most important form of discrimination among citizens in India. But it exists an other kind of discrimination in India

- The dowry tradition is the largest inequality between men and women. When an Indian girls prepares to marry, their families have to give a dowry or a gift to their future husband’s family as compensation to the groom’s parents for the cost of educating their son. If after the wedding, the girl’s family has not paid the dowry, the woman can be

torture even sometimes killed.

- Moreover, there is an other problem with indian women. It is called the 50 million missing

girl . Indeed in India, a lot of girls are killed at birth. There are several reasons for these murders. One is the dowry tradition: raising a boy is financially more attractive because you can receive money when the boy gets married. A girl isn't as financially attractive as a boy because their parents have to pay for her wedding.

- The indian families also prefer to have boys because they can look after family business and name when the parents are old.

- Even if finding out the sex of a baby before birth is illegal, sex-selective abortions are practised. In 2011, the female infanticide has resulted in a gender imbalance as

there are 940 Indian girls for every 1000 boys.
