The caste system effected India's society because you are born into the system and where you are born in the system is where you stay. After you die you are reborn. If you did good in your last life you would have good karma and be put into a higher social group. The caste system was created because of the Aryans. The Aryans thought of themselves as the leaders and the rulers of the Indians. The Aryans were at the top of the social pyramid and they put the Indians to the bottom of the social pyramid. The social classes of the caste system are the Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, Sudras, and the last class that isn't even on the social pyramid because they aren't considered humans, they are the Untouchables. The Untouchables are treated very badly. They have to bang two sticks together to let people know that they are coming and if the untouchable's shadow touches anyone that person is now an untouchable. They also have to scavenge for food and do all the dirty work nobody else wants to do. The social classes of Ancient India's caste system. Untouchables India's Population
