An effective means of disorientation is well nurtured and the manure for the same is well abetted by the media. This has resulted in a successful formation into the creation of the ‘Other’, who no longer is a part of the socio- economic system. This can be majorly seen through varied dimensions, but all these varied dimensions results in a convenient shadow of resorting into a single definition which is the Caste. Hence this process of resorting to a homogenous methodology of Caste definition, calls for a multi-disciplinary approach wherein annihilation to the creation of the ‘Other’ can be achieved only when thought’s alone become macro and plural in its upbringing. These thoughts can be seen in the form of practices through a social, genetic, political, economic, gendered and almost any subjects one can think off .For this very reason, Caste along with Class are used as an effective and efficient hierarchical step, to disorient many resulting in an internalization of the dignified. Hence the article tries to orient the measures used to disorient, by trying to create an antagonistic research relationship of contestations, through using the same prevalent methods that were earlier used for the singularization of one’s being and becoming .The rationale employed in the article is “only if there is a mix of the ‘here and now’ along with the understanding of ‘then’ , the time and space become a civilized existence of social understanding that is bereft of a caste and class consciousness.”
