Taking a break from his successful career as a lawyer in Dubai, K.K. Sarachandra Bose, is traversing the country to put pressure on the government at the Centre to succeed in his mission of making India a caste-free society. The expatriate senior lawyer is on an all-India expedition to spread his message against casteism and the need to root out the malady from the nation.

Bose, who has served a “mandatory notice” on the government of India to eradicate caste system by this calendar year, was in Jaipur on Tuesday as part of his 50-day Bharat Yatra that began on June 9 from Thiruvananthapuram.

Along with a team of 34 volunteers, Mr Bose has been addressing people across the states. Mr Bose has been distributing his book titled Caste Away! India, Hinduism & Untouchability . “The 208-page work brought out in November 2013 is in fact a 13-month mandatory notice I have served on the Government of India for Constitutional reform to eradicate caste system from the country — by December 31, 2014,” Mr Bose told reporters here.

Mr Bose, who is a member of the International Bar Association, is carrying over 10,000 copies of the book for free distribution.
