Caste Culture and Socialism
About twenty year ago a book, purporting to present the views of Swami Vivekananda on Socialism, was published: and on the fly-leaf was displayed in bold letters these words of Swamiji: 'I am a Socialist'. The book created some interest; but people steeped in the Vivekananda lore could easily see that the picture was over coloured. True, Swami Vivekananda had an intimate knowledge of such Western movements as Anarchism, Nihilism, Socialism, and from personal contacts. These movements were then in their Infancy; and even their protagonists had no great hope for the cause they advocated. It was remarkable, therefore, for such an Orientalist as Swami Vivekananda to prophesy at that distant date that 'Socialism of some form was coming on the boards' and that the Shudras as shudras would be the future ruling caste.

Caste, Culture, And Socialism
BY: Anuradha May 29, The process of demonizing Hindu Dharma began in the colonial times. Caste was the most frequently used weapon for belittling Hindu Dharma. Swami Vivekananda is one of the universally accepted certified authorities on Hindu Dharma. Therefore, understanding his views on caste is imperative in the face of challenges from forces both within who continue to believe that caste is hereditary and forces from out who wish to break Bharat along caste fault-lines.
Swami Vivekananda , the nineteenth-century Indian Hindu monk is considered as one of the most influential people of modern India and Hinduism. Rabindranath Tagore suggested to study Vivekananda's works to learn about India. Indian independence activist Subhas Chandra Bose regarded Vivekananda as his spiritual teacher.
