around 1000 BC when rajas were chosen by Jana and priest used to perform rituals like sprinkling of water on the king during ashvamedha ceremony. priest wrote books in North area drained by Ganga and yamuna during this period books were composed later called vedic books. Samaveda Arthwaveda Yajurveda describe how rituals were to be performed and society rules. priest divided people into four groups called vernas brahmin(teach, perform sacrifice etc.) kshatriya or ruler ( fight battle, protect people etc.) vaishya (farmers, heders etc.) shudra(serve other thing, couldn't perform rituals, not allowed to study vedas) later priest classified some as untouchables (who helped in perform burials, crafts men)
