Each one of us has at least one Marwari contact in our friend list if not more. There are certain traits typical to Marwaris which are often talked about. From their love of colours to their passion for food, the community completely nails it.
One necessary correction in our knowledge base should be: Everyone who belongs to Rajasthan is not a 'Marwari'. Marwaris are Indian ethnic group of traders whose origin is from Marwar region. The Marwar region includes Barmer, Jalore, Lakshman Nagar, Nagore, Jodhpur, and Pali.
Here are a few things that you will relate to if you grew up in a Marwari household - and if you didn't, it's still something you can relate to all your Marwari friends.
Every Marwari's staple food. Probably that's the reason why Haldiram's is so famous, right!
Talk about their enterprising skills; they are born financial gurus. Joining the family business is usually on the cards.
From the love for colours to love for food, a Marwari wedding is one full of opulence.
Dal baati churma, gatte and kadhi, the buffets are the most lavish ones. Despite non-vegetarian food is a strict no, their feasts are great.
Travel with a Marwari and you can see a special menu for the journey. From aloo-puri, achar, bhujia sev, mithai in disposable dabbas. It's all planned.
Every lie that a Marwari speaks: "Paise ki Baat Koni." Yes, saving money is in a Marwari's blood but not all Marwaris are kanjoos!
Knowing a bit of Marwari is vital to your communication with your grandparents and they insist on you learning the language.
Despite being a matter of personal choice, this remains a rule generally. They have so many amazing non-alcoholic drinks to offer that you won't even miss your booze.
Religious places (dhams) for a holiday with family is definitely on cards. Once or more, depends.
One thing that a Marwari hears all through their lifetime.
