Indian woman in New Delhi - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

This woman portrait of an Indian woman was taken in New Delhi, India. Traditional Indian society is sometimes defined by social hierarchy. The Indian caste system embodies much of the social stratification and many of the social restrictions found in the Indian subcontinent. Social classes are defined by thousands of endogamous hereditary groups, often termed as jatis, or castes. India declared untouchability to be illegal in 1947 and has since enacted other anti-discriminatory laws and social welfare initiatives. At the workplace in urban India and in international or leading Indian companies, the caste related identification has pretty much lost its importance.
