The caste system and untouchables in India

The caste system is as old as the Indian civilization itself.

Despite modern India’s high tech industry and development, the existence of the caste system is undeniable.

For us outsiders, the untouchables are indistinguishable from other castes and yet are disadvantaged in every aspect of their lives.

The American blacks believe they are disadvantaged because of their skin color, but the matter probably is not as simple as that.
