Hathiram Matt is almost about to fall: Ravi Jarpula (A.P.)


Jaago Goaar Bhai: Baba Hathiram Ji Matt is almost about to fall. Who will take care of this?

Ram Ram Kamal ji,
 
First of all here is my hearty congratulations for maintaining our Banjara Times website.

Kamal ji i have been to tirupathi recently. I visited Hathiram ji Matt. But the conditions prevailing there made me unhappy. Hathiram Matt is almost about to fall. We can find very modern environment at Tirumala except Hathiram babaji Matt and not giving even single care given to Hathiram matt. We can see all dirty surroundings.

As we have got Gor bhai from all areas taking from Civil Service to Engineers and Doctors, we need to be united and make some possible renovation to our Hathiram Babaji Matt.

Kamal ji, I hope that you will rise this question in our Gor bhai who are in higher authority and make them to take necessary action regarding this.

Thanks & Regards!!

Dussaravo (Maavalir Puja) in Mahabubnagar, Andhra Pradesh


Puja Pandal of Tuljabhavani and Higla.


Puja Pandal is covered with red cloth bordered with crescent on the four side edges.

Vadtiya Venkatesh Nayak  interacting with his own people of Lambada Tribe.

Dasaraavo festival is usually celebrated by Lambadas in Telangana after Dussera every year that is why it is called Dasaraavo.  Principle deities of this festival are Tulja Bhavani and Hingla both female deities their husband’s  details is not known, unlike Hindu goddesses who are always at the service of their husbands, for instance Laxmi wife of Vishnu is always sitting at the foot of Vishnu and pressing his legs. The Hindu goddess represents a very strong patriarchal structures and ideology. In the case of Lambada (Banjara) deities Tulja and Hingla they are independent represents the symbol of liberated women, valor and dignity.  Thus, Banjara society by worshipping non-patriarchal godesses represents a non-patriarchal or matriarchal structure which symbolizes an equal place for women in traditional Banjara society. It is the recent phenomenon that Banjaras are adopting brahmanical Hindu traditions and becoming more and more hinduised thus, patriarchal also i.e. authority of male in the family and society also. This change one could observe in the replacement of the practice of bride-price in the traditional Banjara marriages, with dowry, which has emerged as a problem number one in the community. 

In these particular photographs which was taken by me on 9th November 2010, in Yenugonda Tanda of Mahabubnagar town sub-urban in the house of Khatravath Anjalidevi Nayak . This, particular festival resembles with the primitive religious practice of animism and naturism, in which it believes in existence of super natural powers represented in the personified form of Tulja and Hingla. This is celebrated any Tuesdays after Dusserah in October/November. It could be celebrated by the whole tanda or individual households at times. On the day of celebrations, a pandal is prepared in front of the house with small silver symbols of Tulja and Hingla. Then, sacrifice of two goats takes place. Then night dinner is prepared with motton and rice. Elders, consumes liquor. In the entire night elders beat plates with hands rhythmically and sing songs in the praise if deities. Plate beating and singing takes alternatively the whole night. Gradually, this celebration also vanishing very fastly from Banjaras on two accounts in the area. One, since it involves sacrificing animals i.e. killing animals. Many educated Banjaras opting out from celebrating it. Second, it is a representation of primitive religious culture. Many Banjaras in many places are opting for more organized religions like Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. It shows that Banjaras across the country are moving towards an ‘anomic’ situation i.e. a directionlessness in the cultural realm.

Banjara Sanskrutik Utsav 2010 at Cuffe Parade Tanda, Mumbai

A Combination of Photos by Mr. Shankar Rathod and History written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod...


Banjara Sankrutik Utsav on the occasion of Diwali  at Cuffe Parade Tanda, Colaba (Mumbai).


Mera Karero Geet: Varshe Dawali Kot Dawali, Bapu Ton Mera. Varshe Dawali Kot Dawali, Mataral Ton Mera. Varshe Dawali Kot Dawali, Jagdamba Ton Mera. Varshe Dawali Kot Dawali, Seva Bapu Ton Mera.


Dawali (Deepavali) is very important festival for Goaars but they observe this festival in their own distinct tradition. The Goaars observe the worship of the Goddess Laxmi on the night of Dawali. The Girls from Goaar Community dressed in colorful clothes with the lighted lamps in their hands. They obtain the permission for the rite of Mera from the Chief of the Tanda. After the permission they go house to house with singing songs and with this action they instill the spirit of unity and integrity among Goaars.


On the next day of Laxmi Pooja, Goaar Girls dress in colorful clothes and assemble with Bamboo Baskets and go to the fields for collecting flowers. They offer these flowers with devotion to Shri Guru Sevalal Ji Maharaj and Mariyamma. At that time they sing the songs. Making little lumps of Dung, collected from the sheds of each house, they offer flowers to them.This is performed in all the houses of Tanda without any kind of difference.


The girls used to enjoy on those swings and the boys used to be mute spectators. The melody of the songs of the girls and the pleasant atmosphere of the time can’t be described but needs to be experienced. The festival of Diwali was also a main occasion for the unmarried girls. These girls visit all households in the evening with a lamp in their hand to take blessings of the elders. The group of boys also followed them throughout the Tanda and take benefit of the darkness, without success. The next day the girls worship the cow and sing. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


Gor Banjaras were worshippers of Nature since ancient times. The Sun, Wind, Fire, Water and the Earth were their gods. During the festival of Diwali and Holi, ‘Pitrupooja’ is performed. It is known as ‘Dhabukar.’ In it, sweets are offered to the fire in the fireplace. Also wheat rice and curry are offered in the name of saints and great men. These items are buried in the earth by digging a small pit in front of the house. Only the men in the Tanda prepare food for these offerings. Killing a goat is the third offering. By applying a thin layer of cow dung mixed in water a small place on the right side of the house is cleaned. A design of the earth and its four parts showing four continents are drawn with the help of Jowar flour in the cleaned place. It is called as ‘Choki.’ A bronze pot filled with water is kept in the center of the Choki and a small stick of Neem leaves is kept inside it. This is known as ‘Jalkumbh.’ After sacrificing the goat the head of the animal with its legs kept inside its mouth is placed in front of the Choki. Then all the male and female members perform a common prayer. Normally this ritual is performed in the evening. The place of the worship is towards the East while the worshipper prays with folded hands facing the West direction. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


Gor Vamshiyas had a unique yet independent culture. They have preserved their unique tradition of livelihood as also independent public life. It is very much evident in their lifestyle, food habits, festivals, rituals, worship, use of cosmetics, likes and dislikes, dances, songs, language, clothing, literature among the Tanda life. The design of city layout found in Indus culture and those of two-storey structures are referred to in the Banjara folk literature. The reason behind this culturally developed tribe adopting Tanda culture later might be the Mother Nature. The Nature, which the Gors were worshipping, was responsible for destruction of the whole culture. Hence they might have reconciled to the thought of living in Tandas instead of building well-designed cities and dwellings. They might have taken this change as their fate. They had no more faith in creating physical wealth and settling down at one place. It gave origin to their Tanda culture. They considered it as against the fate to create physical households and hence refrained from such an act but the openness and greatness of their mind is still reflected in their public dealings and life. Tanda is the symbol of their life. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


On the first day of this festival i.e. black day of the Kali Mata, a goat is sacrificed and the goddess is worshipped. Young girls, with lamps in their hand go to each household in the night and take blessings of the elders. The next day the girls perform the Godhan Pooja and also observe fast on that day. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


Historically humans were living in groups. Even today such groups are found and they are called as Tanda (Caravan). The Banjara settlement is not called as a village rather referred to as Tanda only. Banjara Tandas are also found in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Gor Banjara tribe had devised rules for game when they used to hunt animals for food. Today they are still in vogue in some Tandas. The Gorvamshi are witness to the hunting stage of early humans dating back to thousands of years. Later in the state of domestication of animals Banjaras was an important tribe in rearing the cows and protecting them. They took their ethnic name from this occupation. ‘Go’ means cow and ‘ra’ means the protector, hence ‘Gor.’ References regarding people engaged in trading by loading their goods on oxen since 4500 years ago are found. As they were engaged in trade they came to be known as Banjara. I think that the word Banjara might have come from Arabic or Persian language. The meaning of the Hindi word ‘Banaj’ means trade. Therefore a person engaged in Banaj was called as Banjara. These people were engaged in trade since pre-Indus times till the arrival of British in India. Their tribe might have been engaged in trade initially and later adopted goods transport as their occupation. This means the tribe is endowed with an ancient history dating back from wild gaming stage to right up to pre-Indus agrarian stage. Their origin might have been buried during the Indus period. Numerous proofs are found in the Vedic period in this regard. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


Gor is one of the ancient vamshas in the world. Its history dates back to 5-6 thousand years. The references about Gor Vamsha are found in Greek civilization up to Harappa and Mohenjodaro. Even proof has been found regarding presence of a civilization here 4500 years prior to Harappa civilization. This civilization is the Gor civilization. It is a subject of research as to how the Gor civilization remained unknown for so many years. With a detailed study it can be concluded that the Gor Vamshi tribe might have been the originator of the Indus civilization. The tradition of chronicling ancient history started here with the entry of British in India. Till that time we were oblivious about the ancient history of India. The world had a wrong perception till 20th century that India is highly backward country with no civilization of its own. The treasure of ancient civilization was found when the digging works for Lahore-Multan Railway started in 1921. This was the Indus civilization. Based on the ruins of this civilization the world accepted the fact that India was indeed a developed civilization in the past. Even the Indus civilization was regarded as superior to the civilizations of Egypt, Greek, Mesopotamia, Bobalia, Sumerian, Taigras and China. The ancientness of the Indian history was taken from the Rigveda period. But due to the discovery of Indus civilization this history was dated back by 3 thousand years. It cannot be told for sure when the references about history, based on the studies and research, will change. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


The tribe, which was known as Banjara, Lamani, and Lambada till 20th century, they are now being proved as Gor Vamshiya tribe. Pundit Gaurishankar Oza did pioneering work in unearthing their unknown history. Till that time Gor Banjaras were ignorant about their own history. During the course of these findings it came to light that Gor culture of Gor Vamshiyas is responsible for the origin of Indus culture. Gor culture has made an impact on the ancient cultures of the world. Even today tribes like Gor Vamshiya are found in some 60 countries. Their world body is known as Roma Gypsies. There is almost 90% similarity as regards their language, costumes, lifestyle and food habits. They treat Gor Vamshiya Banjaras as their brethrens. A world conference of Banjara Romas was held in Germany in 1980. A delegation of Gor Banjaras from India in the leadership of Ramsingh Bhanawat was present in the conference. The other Gor Vamshiyas in the world treat India as their homeland. A comparative research study is underway at the global level. Perhaps the Gor culture may prove instrumental in changing the ancient history of the world, once again. Normally two instruments are used while writing about the ancient history. One of them is physical i.e. archeological source and the other one is oral or unwritten. The things which were buried in the earth in the course of time have been excavated by us and based on them we recreated the Indus culture. But it is likely that many a precious and fragile art crafts might hive been lost in the mean time. We have drawn some conclusions based on the artcrafts and structures found in the excavation. In all the archeological findings do not give a clear-cut picture of the times. We cannot claim to recreate the glorious past solely on their basis. We also need to take into account the human emotions, behavioural patterns, community as well as independent human values, chastity and overall public life for depicting the history. For this the oral inputs in practice are important and they are well preserved with the Gor Banjaras till date. Their study will lead us to know the complete history of Gor culture as follows. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


References about presence of Gor Vamshiya kings in Bengal-Tripura region are found in the folk literature. King Gopichand was a Gor Vamshiya King as per a folk lore. This lore is still sung by Banjara Gor. It mentions that King Gopichand donates his Kingdom and becomes a jogi as per his mother Mainavati’s wish.


Hoogali Gazetteer of West Bengal has a mention that the king Gopichand was a ruler of the region (page 85-86). A meritorious king named Shashank from his dynasty also ruled the region. The real name of Shashank was Soma. Soma is a traditional name in the Gor Banjara tribe. It is said that Shashank ruled in the period 603 to 638 AD. King Soma (Shashank) ruled in the forest region of Tripura to Hoogali for 32 years. Chinese traveler Van Huyan has also mentioned about him in his travelogue. Pundit Mahawar Shastri mentions in the Encyclopedia of Indian Culture-Volume 3 that Gor Vamshiyas ruled the Bengal. He says that ancient scriptures (Bakhar) mentions about Gor kings and Bengal. He further says: “The ancient Kings of Bengal were Gors. The Gor of Ajmer was quite famous. Gor Vamshis ruled the Ajmer region before the reign of Chavan. Chavan forced them into impurity and won over them. Then a Gor army chief established his kingdom in the mountain region of central province. It was in power for 700 years. Sindhia again won it from them in 1809. Radhika Das was the last ruler of the Gor Vamsha." (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)


Lokhitawadi in his book ‘Rajasthan Ka Itihaas’ also mentions about the kingdom of Gor Vamsha in Bengali: “Men from the Gor dynasty were ruling in Bengal. Their kings were based in the mountain ranges of middle province. The Gor of Ajmer was known for his bravery. These Gors were also in the company of Prithviraj Chavan (page 27). The Banjaras in Bengal-Tripura region mention their caste as Gor even today. They do not mention their caste as Banjara. More research is needed to prove the fact that Gorvamshiya kings had ruled the region. It is a must to set the history straight. In order to avoid presentation of history in a wrong manner ancient historical criterion are considered important. The reliable resources that have been accepted by the historians in the course of their research have proved that Gor Vamshiya had once ruled in India. Let us understand these ancient historical resources. (With Thanks from "Gor Banjara Jan-Jaati Ka Itihaas" Written by Prof. Motiraj Rathod)

Education is only way to get rid of powerty: Mohinder Ram Lalka (Vartia) Ghaziabad (U.P.)


Sir,
  
Myself Mohinder Ram Lalka (Vartia) from Panipat, Haryana and I am working in NTPC Ghaziabad, as DEPUTY MANAGER.

I would like to thanks the management team of "banjaratimes.com" website that they are running this service for our society.

Sir, I have some suggestions for the betterment of our Goaar Community, please upload them to our website Banjara Times.

1) EDOCATION IS ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF POVERTY, BECAUSE IN EARLIER TIMES DIFFERENT SOCIETIES HAVE ACCESS TO EDUCATION IN WHATEVER FORM, BUT THEY HAVE TODAY THEY ARE AHEAD OF US.

2) NO ONE CAN FEED ANY ONE FOR HIS ENTIRE LIFE NOT EVEN PARENTS. BUT AFTER GETTING EDUCATION IN SCIENCE, MEDICAL ETC. ANYONE CAN FEED HIMSELF AS WELL HIS FAMILY AND CAN HELP OTHERS.

3) OUR SOCIETY NEED A DEVELOPMENT CENTRE WHERE WE CAN GIVE COACHING IN SCIENCE SUBJECT, SO THAT OUR CHILDREN CAN BECOME ENGINEERS, DOCTORS.

4) IT CAN BECOME A BUSINESS FOR ANYONE OF US. THIRD PERSON  WILL NOT TAKE ANY INTEREST TO DEVELOP OUR CHILDREN. THANKS.
