Ramdulal De & 18th Century Caste System !
As like now -during 18th century money acted as the
great equalizer to build and rebuild the Caste System.
Kaliprasad Dutta belonged to a wealthy Kayastha family.
It is said that he married a muslim lady. For this and
for many other reasons he was ostrasized by the upper
Ramdulal helped him out by placating a large number of
important Brahmins with gifts & money. Thus Kaliprasad
Dutta once again got back his position in the upper
Kayastha society. In fact Ramdulal is said to have
mentioned among his friends " I keep caste in my coffers."
