This Website is in use to aware others about the inhumane treatment and sufferings of the untouchables of India. 

ince thousands of years ago, the Hindus have followed the caste system, their way of government. The four varnas of the Hindu caste system were influenced and brought by the Aryans that invaded India thousands of years ago born into the caste system they instantly become part of the system.  They have the possibility of being born into four classes or groups known as varnas. These varnas are based on "purity" or karma. Because Hindus are deep believers in reincarnation, the varnas or classes depend on how well you lived your past life, and that determines how well you shall live in your new life and what your duties shall be. 

The original classes was first, the top class were for the Brahmas or priests and teachers, followed by Kshatriyas, the current rulers and soldiers of the country, Vaisyas were the merchants and traders, and the laborors the Sudras. Each class and group have their own sub-groups that that are defined and recognized by a persons gender, proffession, region and the many other factors that come into play. 
Today, the caste system has become so complicated that there are now more than 3000  divisions in the caste system.
Unfortunately, the untouchables are a large group of people that are considered so "impure" and "unworthy" that they are placed completely out of the caste system. Unlike some other systems such as democracy in the United States, the caste system does not let one move and improve in rank. They have to remain in their sub-group, marry within their sub-group, and do the trade of their parents.
