ABSTRACT:
Junagadh district is located on the Kathiawar peninsula in western Gujarat. This study is about the current trends of untouchability and resulted changes in rural set up of Junagadh district and not about any kind of comparison of untouchability between the villages. The practice of untouchability is profound in life related intercourse and religious rites like participation in Hindu festivals and navratri, house for rent, invitation in religious occasions etc. however, this view has changed to a greater extent. The reflection of untouchability is also observed with untouchable women. 66.66% respondents experienced practice of untouchability at work and 33.34% mentioned that savarna men demonstrate equality in behavior to develop physical relations and thereby exploit them and also make an attempt to attract by giving allurement. At last, untouchability is fitted in different forms with upper and lower caste and this has become an integral part of social life of individuals. 97.50% participants mentioned that untouchability has not been eradicated from intercourse however it is experienced in one and another form in day to day life.
