Religion and caste are to group/clasify people and not to separate. The objective is not going to change whether it is computer age or historic age. Unfortuante outcome of this grouping is separatism mainly due to the self centric individuals and politicians are playing on the sentiments and widen the gaps rather than making any effort to underline the basic objectives. Census with caste consideration can be counter productive if it is just taken with intention of playing vote bank politics based on castes. Howver this can be helpful in identifying the majority of the poor people that are denied the priveleges due to reservations. Hence they can introduce one more factor during the census i.e economical status. Then we can work on the statistics and provide wholesome benefits of the poor and needy rather than providing benefits to rich people who dont deserve to be categorised under reservation.
