India, a country located in South Asia, has a very large population of poor people that are suffering severely from poverty. Poverty is the shortage of common necessities such as food, clothing, shelter and safe drinking water, all of which determine ones quality of life. Everything that causes poverty for the Indian population revolves around the issue of the caste system. The caste system is a religious social standing system, which means that the population is divided in higher and lower groups. The lowest category in the caste system is the Untouchables. The Untouchables are considered to be people deemed so far below the rest they are considered to be sub-human. Impoverished Indian citizens are left with the low class jobs, unsanitary households, and large money deficits. Unfortunately, this is not new for them and it just keeps getting worse and worse as the years pass. This is happening in most cities located in India, such as Bihar, New Delhi, Tamil Nadu and several other places located in India. In a nutshell, India is a country with multitudes of underprivileged people no matter where you go. Since many residents are facing poverty, they do not have a good lifestyle. Many do not even have a choice in what their lifestyle will be. Due to the ongoing caste system of more than three thousand years, Indians categorized under the system are restrained to their class; thus the rich remain wealthy and the Untouchables remain poor.
