India with 1,189,700,000 billion people,having 3824 castes and 461 tribes is one of the mega diversity countries in the world. It is the second continent after Africa habituated by man for the past 60,000 years. Many more migrants have settled in various parts of India and huge expansion of Mankind has occurred. As a result, different marriage practices and social customs developed. The basic pattern of the society and value system seems to have been laid down well before the origin and spread of Dravidian and Aryan languages in India. India is an ancient land of immigration / spread of many different streams of people, whereas Africa is a land of origin, expansion and diver-gence of the same gene pool for the past 0.2 million years. Comparing these gene pools has already thrown newer insights into various evolutionary principles. One of the greatest experiments of Nature was the Caste system in India.
