The 90th anniversary of The Lascar Memorial in Calcutta, India takes place this month in 2014. Many people will not know who Lascars were or why they should be celebrated.

Industrially and economically India is incredible, but still thousands of people leave the country every year. Why? So long as the caste system continues to promulgate this social hang up of 'birth not worth', outdated religious reservations will hinder sociability and India's presence on the world stage.
