Caste as a social phenomenon has undergone many changes. The most important
operative unit that has exemplified caste in its discourse is subcaste ( jati)
identity. Both within India and certainly in the diaspora, there is now increasing
evidence of the dissolution of subcaste ( jati) identities giving rise to various
other formations of groups replacing the endogamous relationships with other
arbitrary group formations. In this article, I examine some evidence from South
Africa, the West Indies and the UK to analyse how caste has transformed in
these places and what it means for a discourse on caste that is historically rooted
in subcaste identity.
