In Delhi the Arain speak Arain and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat and rice as cereals. They have cross-cousin marriages. Divorce and marrying again is allowed. The dead are buried. Many of them now work in business. They use modern medicines and family planning.

In Punjab they speak Punjabi and read and write in Gurmukhi. Village councils settle disagreements. Many are cultivators as are most other Arain.

In Himachal Pradesh many of them speak Mandiali.
