Hinduism has affected life in India because the caste system has given each group a job to do. For example, the Kshatriyas are warriors. Therefor, their job is to fight the de…mons and to protect the country from invaders. The Brahmin's job is to teach. They have to teach people the origins and teachings of Hinduism. For example they have to recite over 100,000 verses from the Vedas! This caste system has influenced life in India tremendously!

In Caste System
Hinduism contributed to India's two greatest features- political diversity and regionalism. The Guptas, for example, did not unify India's dialects into single language while …China created a standard character system. During the Mauryan dynasty, India was under frequent attack by peoples on the northwestern mountain passes. As a result, classical India instead became a very well governed network of smaller kingdoms. The development of a rigid Hindu caste system lied at the heart of this stability. Separated into brahmins (priests), kshatriyas (warriors and aristocrats), vaishyas (cultivators, artisans, and merchants) and shudras (landless peasants and serfs), the caste system promoted tolerance, allowing widely different social classes to live peacefully next to each other, separated by social structure. Loyalty to caste superseded loyalty to any overall ruler. Moreover, Hinduism promised personal salvation, or in Hindu terms- moksha, to those who practiced the faith diligently.
