India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. A country with a wide diversity of people living in it. The caste system in India is widespread since ancient times. We all know that it is a social evil but still it holds an important place in the hearts and minds of the people.
The caste system is also mentioned in the ancient scriptures. The caste system is mainly based on the tribe, creed, and religion of the people. Although in the very beginning, there were many caste-related issues, people have now brought many changes to the caste system since then. The people in the Indian society are classified based on their caste, what is called the Caste system.
There are four classes of people in Indian society, named the Brahmans, the Kshatriyas, the Vaishya, and the Shudra. According to the Rig Veda, the Brahmans were made from the head, hands were modified to the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas were made from thighs, and Shudras were transformed from feet.
The Brahmans were considered of the highest order in society. There were given utmost respect in the Indian society. They were usually offered jobs like that of a teacher, a priest, or any other respectable job in the society. They often acted as the guardians of religion.
The Kshatriyas were fixed in second place after the Brahmans. They were allocated the jobs of warriors, or the landlords in society. They were very well known for their courage.
Then came the Vaishyas. They were the people who were involved in their businesses. They were handed over jobs like that of a goldsmith, merchants, or small traders in the society.
Next were the Shudras. They were the people who were assigned abject jobs like laborers, artisans, craftsmen, or others. They were the last in order and did not receive any respect from people of other castes.
There was one more caste in the Indian society who were not even treated as humans. They were considered untouchables. These people were the Dalits. They were handed over jobs like sweepers, shoemakers, etc.
We should not treat people according to their castes. We should know that no work is small in this world. The caste system does bring any good in society, rather it just creates a difference in people.
