The aim of the present paper is to analyze the role of caste and religion in the Indian political and social set-up as highlighted by V.S. Naipaul in India: A Million Mutinies Now (1990). The issues of caste, region, subalterns and minorities form the basis of political organizations. These organizations aim at fighting against the injustices meted out to them by the powerful political groups or the leaders. Naipaul highlights that the caste and religion have become key features in Indian politics.
