Indian Caste System

Brahmans and Kshatriyas

Brahmans

This was the highest class, this class consisted of both priest and academics. This was also know as the priestly class. They are known for giving advice to people about life. They are usually land owners and practice agriculture.

Kshatriyas

This was the second class, it consisted of warriors and kings. Kings are usually thought of being in the highest class but that was not the case. Unlike the Brahmans they eat meat and drink alcohol. They would never ever eat beef, as it was insulting to their religion. Many of them were Hindu and Buddhist.
