{ The Four Divisions Of Human Society Are Created By Me According To The Three Modes Of Material Nature And The Work Associated With Them. And Although I Am The Creator Of This System, You Should Know That I Am Yet The Non-Doer, Being Unchangeable. } ~ Bhagavad Gita, Verse 4:13, Jnana Karma Sannyasa Yoga.

The 4 Varnas (Castes) namely Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya & Shudra were created as per the law of Karma and according to 3 Gunas (Aptitudes) namely Sattva, Rajas & Tamas.

Brahmana were assigned the Karma (task) of Meditation, Education, Pacifism. (Sattva) They have the control over their mind and senses.
Kshatriya were assigned to be Brave and Warriors. (Rajas) The administrators.
Vaishya were assigned to Farm, to Domesticate and  to Trade. (Rajas)
Shudra were assigned to Serve others. (Tamas)

{ Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, knowledge, wisdom and religiousness
are the natural qualities of the Brahmanas' Karma. } ~ Bhagavad Gita, Verse 18:42, Moksh Sannyasa Yoga.

 Sauryam Tejo Dhrutir Daksyam

{ Heroism, power, determination, resourcefulness, courage in battle, generosity and leadership are the natural qualities of work for the Kshatriyas. } ~ Bhagavad Gita, Verse 18:43, Moksh Sannyasa Yoga.

{ Farming, cow protection and business are the natural work for the Vaishyas, and labor & service to others for the Shudras. } ~ Bhagavad Gita, Verse 18:44, Moksh Sannyasa Yoga.

Varna (Caste) System was made as per the material natures and the work associated with humans, hence it can't be meant as by birth or heredity. The way we conduct determines our castes.

The caste system was implemented by God himself. Then Kali, the demon came and it got deteriorated badly. But who did it? It's WE the people who made it progressively worse. And now what we are seeing in the name of caste differences is a result of our own misdeeds,our selfishness and our greed. Since we made it worse, now it's our Moral Responsibility to repair it through correct reimplementation. It will be a gradual process, it needs Patience,Co-operation and above all Faith in GOD. But YES we can do it.

Since we believe the whole world as one big family, why it's not concerning us that we are going to leave this world with inequality among our descendants? God gave us the Caste system to Elevate us from animal status as he created human society similar to any animal society. God taught us Unity and in fact during Vedic age our ancestors were following that, the laws of Karma. And now is the time, the 21st century world so called modern world where an human is the worst form of enemy an human ever got. 

I don't know, this might be a false perception of me or say childish or an utopian dream to even think of a possible re-implementation of caste or varna system, but at the same time i am confident that it can happen if we really want it.

HOW TO RE-IMPLEMENT CASTE / VARNA SYSTEM:

1. Through Academicism: We need to start teaching our children in schools about the actual caste system, culture, our Vedic history along with Spiritualism. They shall know how caste system was born and why we need it. They shall know how a Shudra Valmiki or a Kshatriya Viswamitra became Brahmarshi, the supreme sage after they got divine knowledge through Tapas, how should we grow socially with age. For this, we need to abolish (where needed) or modify the education system  that we inherited through British Empire which believed in colonialism. And we the Indians are said to be never invaded any country ever. The base of humanity and morality is education and we need to make our base strong as it was used to be during Vedic era.

2. Through Social Status: Just like we promote a teacher to class teacher or principal of a school, or say just like we promote an employee of any industry/company to higher post, there should be a system to Determine and Upgrade or Demote the caste of a person as per his/her Karma. For this quota system in any manner/form/field need to be abolished completely. In stead mention the current status ( caste ) of any person as per his/her profession. All caste should be treated as equal. There should be no measure to determine who is a low or high caste but a open source to determine the caste of  the people as per his/her present status.

 
3. Through Social Relation:  A) Marriage shall happen between people who have the same standard of cultural and social development. But also can happen among different castes. And above all it's the two sides who can decide not we the third person. B) Helping the needy should be given prior importance than trying to get associated with any well developed person to satisfy the greed.

"GOD HAS CREATED US HUMANS AS EQUAL."
