The comfort of a crisis-free identity of the sudra for us? Not yet. Yes, we
can have it, perhaps, if we disown the lineage to
the Rshi and give up the smskaras like Upanayana.
Otherwise, we can only be called bhrashta brahmanas.
The brahman title sticks until then.

It is not easy to shake off the brahman title, whatever the
burden of performance from the world and perhaps from
our own conscience.

sarvE bhavanthu sukhinah
sarvE santhu niraamayaah
sarvE bhadrANi pasyanthu
maa kaschit duhkhabhAg bhavEt.
