A tribe found throughout India who live a similar life to that of the nomadic Gypsies of Europe. They are also known as Lambadi or Gor. Their language-which belongs to the northwestern family of Indian languages-is called Gor-Boli. In 1953 the first congress was held of the All-India Banjara Seva-Sangh. A Banjara delegation attended the second World Romany Congress. Dr. Shyamala Devi was one of the first of the tribe to go through university. She has visited Europe many times and made a video about the Banjara-Romany connection.
