Teacher Rashmi has the habit of asking the surnames of persons whom she comes across for the first time. She must place the concerned person in the varna system of Indian society. This enquiry about caste identity is resented by many people though it is not expressed openly. Things are more complicated, when she meets a person from another region or part of India.
