Who were the Untuchables

Can you close your eyes and think about you living on the streets with no food to eat and no clean water to drink and then having to sleep on the dirty ground and having no bath in your life well then you are thinking of the people called the untouchables, now called Harijans, have traditionally occupied the lowest place in the caste system of Hindu India; they were called untouchable because they were considered to be outside the confines of caste.
