You could be reborn into a higher caste or a lower caste but that depended on your actions.

Hindu people tried very hard not to have bad karma but sometimes they did. Bad karma is a way to go down a caste. If you where in the caste you could even become out of the caste which are called untouchables. Bad karma was very bad for Hindu people that's why they tried so hard not to get bad karma.

Goog Karma
