Banjara-Lambadi

The word Banjara is a deprecated, colloquial form of the word of Sanskrit origin. The sanskit bi-word Vana chara transliterated as "Forest wanderers", presumably because of their primitive role in the Indian society as forest wood collectors and distributors.
The Banjara are a class of usually ascribed as nomadic people from the Indian state of Rajasthan, North-West Gujarat, and Western Madhya Pradesh and Eastern Sindh province of pre-independence Pakistan. They claim to belong to the clan of Agnivanshi Rajputs, and are also known as Banjari, Pindari, Bangala, Banjori, Banjuri, Brinjari, Lamani, Lamadi, Lambani, Labhani, Lambara, Lavani, Lemadi, Lumadale, Labhani Muka, Goola, Gurmarti, Gormati, Kora, Sugali, Sukali, Tanda, Vanjari, Vanzara,and Wanji Together with the Domba, they are sometimes called the "Gypsies of India".

Distribution

The Banjara have spread to Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and other states of India. About half their number speak Lambadi, one of the Rajasthani dialects, while others are native speakers of Hindi, Telugu and other languages dominant in their respective areas of settlement. Rathore, Parmar, Pawar, Chauhan, castes belong to Vanjara community in Rajasthan and Gujarat now are in General Seats after the communal rights taken place in Rajasthan for Reservation in 2008 as they were landlords in Amarkot, Fathaykot and Sialkot before Partition of India and Pakistan. They are an ST in Andhra Pradesh (where they are listed as Sugali), Orissa, Karnataka (SC), Haryana, Punjab, and Himachal Pradesh.

Culture in Andhra Pradesh
In Andhra Pradesh, Lambadas in the Telangana region were only recently recognised as Schduled Tribes; earlier we were recognised as Denotified Tribes. Lambadas are of North-west Indian origin, who lived primarily by Our earnings from transportation on the pack bullocks. There is evidence to show that we supplied food grains etc. to the Moghuls when we invaded the Deccan. However, there is some dispute about the nature of Our Moghul connection. Whether we accompanied the Moghuls as an ordinance corps in the conquest of the Deccan, and some of them later stayed back to continue trade, or whether we were already present as traders, having come in an earlier period, and assisted the Moghuls when the latter came South.
Women, Lambadi / Gor women (Thandri) wear a very colourful red style dress and lots of jewellery. The clothes we wear are decorated with pieces of mirror and cowl. we wear ivory bangles and ornaments, which are innumerable. The dance performed by Lambadis is more a rhythm based one. But when performed to the beat of the drums, it gains momentum.
Dance, Lambadi is a special kind of dance of Andhra Pradesh. In this form of dance, mainly the female dancers dance in tune with the male drummers to offer homage to Our Lord for a good harvest. At Anupu Village near Nagarjunakonda, Lambadi dance originated. we are actually semi-nomadic tribes who are gradually moving towards civilization and decency. This dance is mainly restricted among the females and rarely the males participate in Lambadi Dance. Lambadi is a special kind of Folk Dance which involves participation by tribal women who bedeck themselves in colorful costumes and jewelry.

Food

The traditional food of Lambadis is Bati which is Roti. Daliya is a dish cooked using many cereal (wheat, jawar). Banjara people are very much fascinated about non-vegetarian food. Saloi (made from goat blood and other parts of goat) is a non-vegetarian dish made exclusively by Banjara people. They prefer eating spicy food.

Dress

Women are known to wear colorful and beautiful costumes like phetiya (as ghagra) and kanchalli (as top) and have tattoos on their hands. The dress is considered fancy and attractive by Western cultures. They use mirror chips and often coins to decorate it. Women put on thick bangles on their arms (patli). Their ornaments are made up of silver rings, coins, chain and hair pleats are tied together at the end by chotla.
Men wear Dhoti and Kurta (short with many folds). These clothes were designed specially for the protection from harsh climate in deserts and to distinguish them from others.

Arts, literature and entertainment

Their customs, language and dress indicate they originated from Rajasthan. They live in settlements called thandas. They lived in zupada (hut). Now many of them live in cities. They have a unique culture and dance form. On many occasions they gather, sing and dance.
Their traditional occupation is agriculture and trade. Banjaras are also a group of nomadic cattle herders.
The accurate history of Lambanis or Lambadis or Banjaras is not known but the general opinion among them is that they fought for Prithvi Raj against Muhammad of Ghor. The trail of the Lambadi/Banjara can be verified from their language, Lambadi borrows words from Rajasthani, Gujarati, Marathi and the local language of the area they belong to.
Banjaras originally belong to Rajasthan and they were Rajputs who migrated to southern parts of India for trade and agriculture. They settled down in the southern or central area of the country and slowly loosened contacts with Rajasthan, and their original community. Over a period of time both the communities separated and they adopted the local culture. The language spoken by Banjaras settled in Yavatmal district of Vidarbha, Maharashtra is an admixture of Hindi, Rajasthani and Marathi. The word "Banjara" must have evolved from Prakrit and Hindi and Rajasthani words "Bana/Ban or Vana/Van" meaning Forest or Moorlands and "Chara" meaning 'Movers'. The Banjara are (together with the Domba) sometimes called the "Gypsies of India".
Lambadi Dance is a special kind of dance of Andhra Pradesh. In this form of dance, mainly the female dancers dance in tune with the male drummers to offer homage to their Lord for a good harvest. At Anupu village near Nagarjunakonda, Lambadi dance originated. They are actually semi-nomadic tribes who are gradually moving towards civilization. This dance is mainly restricted among the females and rarely the males participate in Lambadi dance. Lambadi is a special kind of Folk Dance which involves participation by tribal women who bedeck themselves in colorful costumes and jewelry.

Banjara Marriage Culture

The banjaras are grouped into 4 categories called gotras. The lambadi language term for gotra is Goth/Pada. The gotras are
1. Rathod/Bhukya
2.Chavan
3.Pawar
4.Vadtya.
Under each of these gotras there are several Jaaths. People falling in the same Gotra Dont marry, they are considered brother and sister. The term for this is Bhaipana meaning brotherhood. If people fall under different gothras and can marry, the term used is Laagach means can marry. People usually have their jaath name as the surname, A detailed Jaath check of which jaath can marry which jaath and whom they fall under can be done at banjarapoint website in their jaath check / gotras check page. This was traditionally done by people called dhadi bhaats who were kind of knowledge agents/Knowledge experts.
The Rahtod/Bhukya Gotra/category has been said to have split into 2 making Banoth as a separate gotra by itself. So some people say there are 5 gotras.Turi(badawat)is also said to be an additional gotra.it means there are 6 gotras can be said

Examples of Banjara Marraige Culture

Bhaipana example Ghugloth (Vadtiya) and Aajmera (Vadtiya) cannot marry as fall under same category i.e Vadtiya and they are brother and sister.
Laagacha example Ghugloth (Vadtiya) and Bhukya (Rathore) can marry as they fall under different categories, i.e Ghugloth falls under Vadtiya and Bhukya Falls under Rathore/Rathod.
here are some of the sub-caste of gotras:

    5. There is a solution for this, kanyadhan of the girl belonging to same gotra should be done by others who belong to other gotra like phupa or mama so that the girls gotra is changed now. But remember guys there shouldn't be any blood relations between their two families from the past 7 generations. In this way you can solve this problem

    6. I am a Rathod. I fell in love with a beautiful girl whose surname was Naik, but I didn't knew she was under Rathod gotra. Even initially I dint bothered about gotra. Since she was a banjara I proposed her, she accepted me. But after 2 yrs of relationship she realized that it can't happen. So we broke up. I wish I/she was not born in Rathod or entirely in Banjara caste. Felt guilty. All I cared about her. But due to society's fear and our parents respect, we finally broke up. This community has gave me nothing but a way to leave your loved ones for fucking gotras. I really felt bad for being borned in this Banjara samaj. I don't totally hate Banjara caste, but it took away (killed) my first love forever. We are victims of this bloody caste system.

  56. The information above is nothing new! its written Vague. Someone should shoot up with references and archaeological proofs. though major content in the introduction about banjaras is correct! one should come up with the archives from Indian government and the pakisthani government. Our migration, culture has no basement at least no proof's that we existed from ancient times.
    I've been to most of the places that are mentioned above not as a tourist ,ofcourse, i've spent decent time living there (3 months in Haryana, 7 months in Rajasthan, 1 odd month in Gujarat, 2 months in Western UP, frequent visitor to mumbai and pune. In the course of my stay i met people with surnames Gehloth, Ahlawath, Kitawath, Sherawath, chauhan....etc and these people are totally different and are not banjaras atleast to my knowledge. Now we must gather info about their origin, background and conclude ours. We shouldn't just move on with the inappropriate blog! (i mean with out ref's) the above information is very informative but utterly vague.

    Proper channel must be introduced to our overlooked community! people who are interested in finding ourselves lets give a try together contact me over facebook (srinu.shines@yahoo.com). I'm interested lets initiate and make something better for our community in future.

      Delete
    2. There is a solution for this, kanyadhan of the girl belonging to same gotra should be done by others who belong to other gotra like phupa or mama so that the girls gotra is changed now. But remember guys there shouldn't be any blood relations between their two families from the past 7 generations. In this way you can solve this problem
