It appears that every state in India presents unique challenges to our leaders to get Hindus united. Most of us don't know and are totally oblivious to what goes on in other states of the union. In this thread I intend to present some of the nuances of stratification of Hindus, to promote an understanding of why things happen the way they do, why people vote in certain ways. My humble request is to not turn the thread into a discussion forum. Of course additional inputs to augment whatever is presented are always welcome. Thank you.
