1. Many Sinhalese do not care much about caste. It is common to see people of different castes getting married in Sri Lanka. I have personally noticed it is common to find mixed Karava- Govigama couples. Also, nobody is discriminated against or denied jobs or opportunities just because of their caste. However, caste still matters to a significant amount of people. For example, if you read the matrimony section of any newspaper where people are advertising the availability of their son/ daughter for marriage, some people specify what caste they want any potential spouse of their son/ daughter to be. So it still matters a lot to some people.

  2. Sorry if this is a stupid question but how do you know which caste you are from? Is it like from your last name or something to do with astrology?
