I think a caste system still exists in Sikh society and I think it always will as long as people from our parents/grand parents generation hang on to their old ways. Of course, you should address each individual independently, but I think in the big things in life, i.e. marriage and family customs, the presumed caste differences come out more so and it's these big things that continue to keep it alive.
