Introduction / History

The word sahu is related to the word moneylender. The Sahu of Madhya Pradesh are vegetarians who eat maize and wheat. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Hinduism is their religion.

Divorcees and the bereaved can marry again. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, the oldest son becomes in charge of the home.

Most of the Sahu own land and they work mainly in agriculture. There are professional workers such as doctors and engineers among them. They have a council to look after them. They believe in education and use modern medicines and family planning.

The Sahu of Delhi are mostly self-employed in the confectionery business and in transport. They are monogamous.
