Cast(E)ING Marketing Strategy in India
Indian society is heavily characterized by the dominance of caste and religion. Many social practices take these
factors into account. But, they remain in the blind spot region for Indian marketing. Lack of proper understanding of the
phenomenon, fear of possible negative reactions and lack of relevant data are cited as some of the reasons. It is suggested
that proactive and professional action from the marketing fraternity may be the right leads in this area.
