The soul is leaving several bodies in several births. Why the soul is remembering the concepts of the body only?

The soul does not remember the aspects related to body (name, caste, gender etc.,) from the previous births. The soul is integrated only with the samskara (essence of various qualities, which is jiva) achieved through the body related to previous births. All the samskaras in each birth are one and the same qualitatively in essence. Since the body is very close to the soul, it is natural that the soul gets only the samskaras related to the body due to the super imposition of the body over the soul.
