What say you?
As people we are alway's changing , our view's, long held beliefs and in some cases even tradition's. The better educated one becomes the more we ask questions and challenge taboo's. The only question is at what rate we change rather then the need to change.
India is a young country with a young population so it should always be looking for the right answers.

The bhadralok community of Bengal includes all gentlefolks belonging to the rich as well as middle class segments of the Bengali society. Amongst the upper middle classes, a zamindar, normally bearing the title Chaudhuri or Ray-Chaudhuri at the end of the name, and Babu at the beginning would be considered to be a bhadralok.
A zamindar bearing the title Raja or Maharaja would be considered to be higher than a bhadralok.
All members of the professional classes, i.e. those belonging to the newly emerging professions, such as doctors, lawyers, university professors, and higher civil services, were members of the bhadralok community. However, an individual bearing the title Esquire at the end of the name, denoting a rank just below a Knight, was also considered to be higher than a bhadralok.
