    The caste system in Aryan period was based upon the duties and the job of a person, contrary to what it has evolved to. The social responsibilities of each caste were defined and they were restricted to fulfilling their own duties. There were four caste divisions: 1. The Brahmins- looked after all religious issues, 2.The Kshatriyas- warriors, 3.The Vaishyas- accounting and money-lending, and 4.The Shudras- the workers of lower class. The caste of a person was not inherited, but was determined on the basis of an individual's capability. But with time, caste became a hierarchical attribute passing to a child from parents.
