Hey! How are you doing? I am also doing well on this side. My mom has been asking about your health recently. I am going to write to you about the caste system that is currently prevailing in Nepal. You know that I love reading and researching about different places and their culture. So when I was looking for some information about Nepal, I found out some interesting things about the caste system of the place. The caste system of Nepal is very much inspired by the Hindu model of Chaturvarnashram, in which society is broadly divided into different castes or varnas- Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Sudra. Brahmins are the religious teachers or priests that propagate knowledge, Kshatriyas are the warriors, Vaishyas take care of business and agriculture, and finally, Sudras serve the rest of the classes. Recently, the government of Nepal has abolished the caste system and any form of discrimination on the base of caste but it still prevails in some places.
