At the top of the social class was the Brahmins or the priests who spoke with the gods, below them were the Kshatriyas, who were the warriors. Three steps down from the top are the Vaisyas which were the merchants and Artisams that provided for the priest and the warriors. Below the Vaisyas, who were the labors and the farmers and at the bottom of the caste system were the untouchables. The untouchables were people who dealt with dead people and animals in some way.
