The classes, or castes, of ancient India were the brahmins, kshatriyas, vaisyas and sudras. The brahmins were the priest class, the kshatriyas the ruler and warrior class, the vaisyas the merchants, artisans, farmers, etc., and the sudras the peasants and laborers.

They were typically given the occupations that members of the other castes found dishonorable or unclean.
