Varna meaning "color" originated from the ancient Vedic Sanskrit word varna, which referred to the four divisions of society based on occupation. The four varnas are Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and Shudras. Each varna is divided into two extremes, namely the noble and the base. The four varnas have been superseded by the five varnas.
