ANTI - BRAHMANISM, THE NEW COMMUNALISM OF MODERN INDIA
The Brahmins were not only educators, they also took part in various service activities and strove to help the poor. Charity and social service were part of all Brahmin traditions and are enshrined in their daily practices. Untouchability, which has become such a bane to the modern mind, arose from Brahmin attempts to maintain religious purity. 

It was part of a culture of purity in which, Brahmins were taught that they should avoid contact with people who engaged in professions that hurt other creatures, or were otherwise violent or sensual in their behavior.

In particular the Brahmins refused to take food with those who ate meat or violated other Brahmin rules of purity and non-violence. While one may criticize such aloofness, it is quite different from that of a rich aristocracy refusing to associate with poor people, which it is often equated with.
