Members of the highest caste, they were priests. Consists of those engaged in high education and teaching. Received the highest amount of respect. Life would be ahead of the curve and domination of the social class. You would live in the best homes beside the castle. You would have slaves and servants.

The Sudras

The Sudras were the unskilled people of the caste system. They are the lowest ranking and could barely find a job. Sometimes they could get a small paying job on a farm or a cleaning business. They were the largest population and had limited rights. Some believe that this caste were decedents of the people who founded the Indus River.

The Untouchables

They were so low that they didn't even get their own ranking. Nobody was aloud to touch them nor talk to them. They were not even considered human. They had no rights and the only job they could get was begging. If you were born an untouchable you could not marry out you had to stay there. They were the most disrespected people of the whole Hindu society.
