The Indian caste system (Sanskrit varna वर्ण) comprised of four classes, namely: the Brahmins (priests), the Kshatriyas (rulers, administrators, warriors), the Vaishyas (artisans, merchants, tradesmen, farmers), and the Sudras (labouring classes meant to serve the three upper classes). Another important group of people are the Dalit, the Untouchables, as well as the tribal people, considered to be out of the system.
