A clean Gypsy household, Parikshitgarh, Dist. Meerut

I was really surprised at the cleanliness displayed in this small gypsy household – check the clothes / pillow on the bed and on the cart, the painted cart and floor. Also specially observe the cleanliness with which the vegetables are being cut and prepared.




The lady of the house, a young woman, was exceptionally beautiful and had no fear of the camera.

Gypsies of India have been able to preserve their unique cultural identity even in the present millennium. They earn their livelihood though making iron implements, though in older times references are there of them being used as transporters of goods as every Indian gypsy family owns its own cart.

The Indian gypsies appear to have distant links to the gypsies of Europe.
