      Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (–) rose from a community of "untouchables," to become a major figure in modern Indian history.

This group has been termed the panchama (the fifth varna), collectively designating all who fall outside the regular four classes.. The notion of untouchability may have been present in the original varna system, though it is not clear precisely how it operated.. Puranic texts mention .
