The Untouchables were a social group in India that were considered to be outside the traditional Hindu caste system. They were considered to be of a lower status than other castes and were not allowed to participate in many of the same activities as other castes. They were also not allowed to enter temples or participate in religious ceremonies. The Untouchables were often subjected to discrimination and were not allowed to own land or participate in certain occupations. Despite this, they have managed to survive and even thrive in some areas of India. Today, the Untouchables are still discriminated against in some areas, but they have made great strides in recent years in terms of education and employment opportunities.
