INDIA:  BBC POLL 

CASTE CLOUDS INDIA'S HIGH HOPES

Feb 5, 07.  Indians want to see their country punch its weight around the world - but are worried the caste system is holding it back, a BBC poll suggests.

Almost two-thirds of respondents in the World Service poll said India being an economic superpower was important. But 55% thought caste issues were still a "barrier to social harmony."

The poll found that a majority (71%) are proud to be an Indian.

47% agreed that "corruption is a fact of life which we should accept as the price of doing business in today's world", although younger people were less tolerant of corruption than older people.

One in two (50%) felt that "people in India don't take their religion seriously enough", while two in five (40%) believed that "young people have lost touch with their heritage and traditions".
