That is what sir has said.
Sir, a doubt regarding 92. I think Varna system was based on the 'occupation', however Caste system was based on the 'birth' which was a later concept compared to Varna.

No Ankita, Roman sir is right. Varnas were based on the basis of birth. You can check it in class 6 History book- page 56- 4th line from the top.
jab varna system start hua tha tab vaha occupation based tha baad me waha birth vice ho gaya
Hello Sir, the use of iron ploughshare and transplanting paddy started around 2500 years ago that is 500 B.C. So the period between 1000-500 B.C is called later Vedic period and not Rig Vedic period. If u can please correct this.
sir, itna subah subah course upload, aap great ho Sir, plz mere course bhi promote kar dijiye
Sir, wasn't the varna system originally followed on the basis of occupation one chose. Later it was decided on the basis of birth. ?

Yes, I also agree with you. As the nineth mandal of Rigveda states about a person who is a poet and his father was physician and his mother was a grinder. In the later vedic period the Varna System was followed on the basis of birth. Initially before the Iron revolution 1000BCE, it was on the basis of occupation. :)

They were expected to fight battles and protect people. Third were the vish or the vaishyas. They were expected to be farmers, herders, and traders. Both the kshatriyas and the vaishyas could perform sacrifices. Last were the shudras, who had to serve the other three groups and could not perform any rituals.
