Speaking after inaugurating ‘Law Day’ organised by the Bar Association of Mysore here, he observed that once there was disparity in the society in the name of caste and class.

However, it vanished after the Constitution came into being. Since then the Constitution has been advocating equality in the society.

Prof Ravivarmakumar said there were more than 5,000 caste in the country starting from the brahmins to bhangi. The casteism has spread its tentacles across the country. Now is the right time to give a re-loom into the prevailing caste system. “Freedom, equality and universal brotherhood are the solutions”.

He said globalisation has finished social and economic equality because of which the gap between the rich and the poor is widening day by day. It was heartening to note that every adult in the country enjoys voting right. Even the President and a worker in the Rashtrapathi Bhavan have one vote each and both of them have same value.

Bar Association President C Appajigowda presided. District Principal and Sessions judge H P Sandesh, Bar Council of India member C M Jagadish and legal expert, Prof Basavaraj were present. Association Secretary U M Subbaiah and Manasa Manjula also spoke.
