Introduction / History

The Mallah of Bihar speak Maithili or Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat rice. Hinduism is their religion. Marriages are usually by discussion. They have birth and marriage rituals and have large families. They are monogamous. The divorced and bereaved can marry again. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son in charge of the home. The dead are cremated or buried. Fishing is their main work and agriculture after that. They use modern medicines and family planning. Boys are educated. They have a caste council that judges in certain matters.

In Madhya Pradesh the Mallah speak Chhattisgarhi. They do not like to use family planning. They work in fishing. Some also work in cultivation.

In Delhi they are a Scheduled Caste and speak Hindi. They do fishing and boating and sell fish in the markets. Some are laborers.
