- The Ahoms built a large state. The Ahom state depended upon forced labour.

Q6: What changes took place in varna-based society?

- As the economy and the needs of society grew, people with new skills emerged.
- As a result, the smaller castes, or jatis, emerged within varnas.
- For example, new castes appeared amongst the Brahmanas. On the other hand, many tribes and social groups were taken into caste-based society and given the status of jatis.
- Specialised artisans – smiths, carpenters and masons – were also recognised as separate jatis by the Brahmanas.
- Jatis, rather than varna, became the basis for organising society.
- Among the Kshatriyas, new Rajput clans became powerful.
- The rise of jatis led to unequal social order and a greater divide between castes.

Q7: How did tribal societies change after being organized into a state?
Ans: The emergence of large states changed the nature of tribal societies. We can understand this with the help of two examples—the Gond society and the Ahom society.

- The Gond chiefs now wished to be recognised as Rajputs.
The Ahom Society:

- The influence of Brahmanas increased.
- Temples and Brahmanas were granted land by the king. In the reign of Sib Singh, Hinduism became the predominant religions.
Q8: Were the Banjaras important for the economy?
Ans: The Banjaras were very important for the economy.
- They were trader-nomads and controlled trade and commerce.
- They played an important role in transporting grain to the city markets.
- They usually bought grain where it was cheaply available and carried it to places where it was dearer. From there, they again reloaded their oxen with anything that could be profitably sold in other places.
- They helped traders by working as carriers.
- For example, Sultan Alauddin Khalji used the Banjaras to transport grain to the city markets.
- Emperor Jahangir wrote in his memoirs that the Banjaras carried grain on their bullocks from different areas and sold it in towns. They transported food grain for the Mughal army during military campaigns.
