Hindu Caste System Graphic

Here is a nice graphic for the Hindu caste system. Once you click the link, click again on the page for an enlargement. What is especially neat about the graphic is that it tells you the names of famous members from each level of the caste, like Nehru from the Brahmins or Mohandas Gandhi from the Vaishyas or traders, and even KR Narayanan from the Dalits (formerly the Untouchables). He is a former president of India.
