Suta, 3 Definition(s)
Another name for Sauti, a narrator of the Mahabharata.
A Suta is a child fathered on a Brahmana woman by a Kshatriya man. Since Brahmanas are higher up in the Varna system than Kshatriyas, this mixed marriage was considered to be against the scriptures, and the children born of such a union possess a low status. If a Brahmana man fathers a child on a Kshatriya woman, the child acquires the caste of the father, and becomes a Brahmana, and no stigma attaches to it.
