"We’re not outcasts here. I don’t care if we are associated with dalits – I don’t live in a community where caste exists. I do feel a bit Indian, I’ve always felt an affinity with Indians," - Joseph Jones of the Gypsy Council

Personal thoughts and reflection : Well Mr. Jones castes certainly don’t exist in Europe yet in it’s place there are classes and like it or not I wouldn’t be so certain that you are entirely accepted and you may well still be outcasts. And if you’re truly certain when you say that you “feel a bit Indian and felt an affinity with Indian” you certainly still are a Dalit, an untouchable.
