Polygamy is also practised in this community wherein a Garasia male is allowed to have more than one wife if his first wife is sterile or bears no sons. A woman can also seek out a new live-in partner at another fair who is then expected to pay a higher price to the woman’s former partner.
The Garasia typically live in one-room houses made with mud and bamboo walls. Those with more money build flat tiled roofs, while the poorer people still use thatch. Houses are usually built on the slopes of hills with their fields extending out in front. There is usually a guest house opposite the house of the headman of the village. There is no central village site where the people meet together. In fact, there is very little unity or cooperation between the village clans.
Traditionally, this tribal group worshipped their horses, their swords, and the sun. Today, they still practice ethnic religions, but their beliefs have been heavily influenced by Hinduism. Even though they now worship millions of gods and respect holy cows, as do Hindus, they still hold onto their original fearing of ghosts, belief in spirits of the dead, and black magic.
