Or, just frame and mount on the wall The Banjara are a nomadic people, who 2300 years ago descended from Roma gypsies of Europe who migrated through the rugged mountains of Afghanistan and finally settled down in the deserts of Rajasthan in India. The colourful stream of the Banjaras began to travel down to the South in the 14th century. In the early 1800s, following the invasion by the armies of Aurangzeb and thanks to the number of cattle they owned, the Banjaras worked for the Moghuls as commissariat carriers transporting provisions and arms, setting up camps on the outskirts of army encampments. When the Southern campaigns ended, the Banjaras forgot their desert homes in Rajasthan and settled down in the Deccan, the plateau of central peninsular India.
Today the Banjara lifestyle has naturally altered and the tribals have had to abandon their packs of animals and take to working as laborers on building and construction projects. Despite all this, their traditional customs, manners and ceremonies have undergone little change and their migratory instinct is still intact. They move wherever work is available, set up their temporary hamlets and build simple homes of mud and bamboo plaits. They keep very few domestic possessions and make do with earthen vessels, small quilts, bamboo and date mats and some rickety wooden articles. Brass and copper vessels are only recent additions and even these are very few in each family. The younger generation prefers to settle down to pucca (permanent) jobs in cities. Some are already plying rickshaws in Hyderabad while many have taken to other regular jobs. Available in assorted colours in different unique designe
