Nomads - Lesson Summary

The Banjaras were nomadic traders who move from place to place for selling goods. They moved in a tanda or caravan with families, oxen and wares.

A tanda would consist of 600 or 700 people and would travel around 8-10 kilometres per day. They bought grains from a cheap place and sold to a place where it was dearer which they transported on their oxens.

For food, they would depend on pastoral goods such as milk, ghee and other animal products. They exchanged craft articles either created by them or bought from far off places and pastoral products such as wool, ghee for the grains, cloth and utensils.

They were important traders, as kings would often ask them to provide food to their soldiers.
