Who were the untouchables?
These are the people who were considered the lowest in society in Hindu India, so low that they were not part of the caste system. They had no rights. If they had a job at all other than begging, it was a degrading job that no one else wanted to do. You were born into the untouchable group. If your parent was an untouchable, so were you.
