  • Assumption that upper caste as being superior hence to be imitated. 
  • Justification of the practice of inequality and exclusion as marked privileges of upper castes hence a discriminatory system. 
  • Process that is gendered – though progressive for men, upper caste practices like purdah system, low age of marriage dowry in place of bride price are regressive as far as women are concerned. 
  • Erosion of Dalit culture would be an expected outcome.
