Using the case of Vagaikulam, an average village in India, and discussing such topics as politics and religion, this study demonstrates that "caste" and "class" factors are in coalition as much as they are in opposition, that they are neither parallel nor compartmentalized but a dynamic process. This work also shows the extent to which the caste-class dynamics are at work in all the major social aspects of the village: economics; business; politics; culture; and recreation
