The Rsi Scholars
From the very beginning of the Vedic period there appears on the field, a class of Rsis who were the real exponents of Aryan culture and who devoted their lives to disinterested psychological and scientific inquiry in thinking, imagination, reasoning and generalization.
These Rsis were the proto-types of our modern scientific research scholars. These Rsi scholars lived apart from the world in quiet forest retreats ideal places for study and meditated on and discussed the problems of life from different points of view from that of other people. Some one has justly remarked that India was a nation of scholars in old days as the west is a nation of scholars at present. The forest Asramas (dwellings) gradually grew to be the centers of the highest Aryan learning. Though deeply absorbed in, metaphysical studies, the Rsis experience of worldly life won them high reputation as teachers for the younger generation.
The ancient Aryan people who inhabited this country were gradually divided into four classes, the Brahmanas or the priestly class, the Ksatriyas or the martial class, the Vaisyas or the agricult�ural and commercial class, and the Sudras or the serving class.
