Vedic Society (Part-I)।Social Structure in the Vedic Age।Created by PAATH History


Welcome to PAATH History…
Vedic literature is the only source of social history of that time. This shows that early Aryan social organization was essentially tribal, based on kinship. It is likely that the early Aryans had some consciousness of their distinctive physical appearance. They were generally fair, and the indigenous people dark in complexion. The colour of their skin may have been an important mark of their identity. This provided the context for the use of the term varna (colour). In course of time the tribal society was divided into various groups. Unequal distribution of spoils of war was certainly the basic reason for the emergence of the fourfold division of society. But the phenomenon was also linked with the long process of acculturation between the local population and the Aryan migrants, of which there is considerable evidence. All these issues are discussed in this video.
