19 Caste system may play key role in fatal fire case Associated Press - January 2, :44 PM ETOAK FOREST, Ill. (AP) - India's caste system will likely play a key role in the prosecution of a suburban Chicago man charged with setting a fire that killed three family members.Authorities say Subhash Chander of Oak Forest said he was angry his daughter -- Monika Rani -- had married Rajesh Kumar because Kumar belonged to a lower caste in Chander's native India. Rani, Kumar and the couple's 3-year-old son died in the fire.The caste system was outlawed in India 60 years ago but it remains a strong force in India and even among some recent immigrants to the United States.They say it can be humiliating for a father whose daughter has married someone in a lower class.Prosecutors say Chander claims he got into an argument Saturday night with Kumar and then set the fire with a lighter.Copyright 2008 The Associated Press.

33 Explain how the ancient Aryans are a civilization even though they did not have a writing system. Even though the Aryans did not have a writing system they were still a civilization. Even without a writing system, they still had literature with the Vedas. The Vedas were a collection of hymns, prayers, and poetry that documented their culture and religion. Religion is another key factor for a civilization seen with the Aryans. Though historians do not know much about their religion they did leave behind many figures of gods and goddesses. Aryans also had social classes. The caste system is the Aryan class system that divided the people and told them what jobs they had. This also shows the Aryans had job specialization necessary to be a civilization. Advanced technology can be seen in the chariots the Aryans used and the weapons and figurines they created. For all these reasons, the Aryans had many characteristic that qualified their society as a civilization even without a writing system.
