Roy T James


He has taken to writing on retirement from Indian Navy in 2013 after a lengthy career, during which he had the good luck to come across as colleagues, subordinates and superiors, a real, wide cross section of India, and quite a few more from the rest of the world. Every second person, during those years, that one had to do business with, thus being from widely different backgrounds and consequently presenting a kaleidoscopic view of society, he couldn't but reflect on human transactions in many colors, each of them leading to a horde of imponderables, human or non human, living and non living.
So far has published the following books:
-Origin of Caste in India, revised and republished as CASTE The Unexplored Territories, a new, practical and fundamentally different approach to the most vexed social problem of India.
-Origin of Evolution, revised and republished as The Unsure Male, a holistic look at the issue of life which shockingly opens up a myriad of possibilities.
-Glimpses of Autobiography, a collection of memories.
-Hubs that Provoke, a collection of Essays
-Homo Posterus, a science fiction novel

Caste is a relic of dark ages. It did not evolve into a modernized version in the natural course of events as the people of India were not the real custodians of Indian society, having been under foreign rule for many years and those rulers finding great use in caste. Why it still clings on to India, when rest of the world are free of remnants of bygone eras, is analyzed here.
