I wrote my memoir on Smallpox eradication in India about the two years -1975-77 that I worked in isolated villages in India's states of West Bengal and Rajasthan. I spoke openly of caste discrimination and sexism. Over the forty years since my time in India, I've been told that caste does not play a role anymore. This article is very telling and disturbing. #vaccines, #smallpox, #discrimination
