Dear One:

I cannot answer your question, as I do not know details of the caste system. Sikhi teaches us that adherence to caste system is wrong; that no one is above or below another because of a social label. All are equal as Sikhs of the Guru. A shabd by Bhagat Kabeer in Siri Guru Granth Sahib tells us that when we criticize another (because of caste, for example) we criticize the Creator who made us all. ("Aval Allah Noor Upa-i-aa" shabd)

If you still must know, ask your uncles or father, they should know the answer to your question.

It is my prayer that you marry who you wish to marry without concern for her or your so-called caste.

Guru Rakha,
-DKK
