Introduction / History

The 5,000 Boria people are a small community by Uttar Pradesh standards. In the late 19th century, a writer by the name of Crooke described them as a, "tribe of village servants and cultivators." Though some labor for either Brahmin or Bania landowners, other Boria people own their own land.


What Are Their Lives Like?

There are no surprises with their family structure. They value extended families, and the inheritance goes to the sons. There are very few surprises with their religious beliefs either. They celebrate Holi, Diwali, and other Hindu celebrations in a state where less than one in 1,000 is a Christian of any kind.
