Balmiki

Dalit life is excruciatingly painful, charred by experiences.  Experiences that did not manage to find room in literary creations.  We have grown up in a social order that is extremely cruel and inhuman.  Omprakash Valmiki

Who are they?

The Balmiki are one of the largest socially stigmatized Dalit groups numbering nearly 1.5 million in Uttar Pradesh alone and constitute about 16 % of India’s population.  They occupy the lowliest position of the caste system.  During the colonial period they were brought from villages to remove human excrement and clean the cities.  They became an urban community.  In time, with the introduction of septic latrines, the practice of carrying buckets of excrement on their heads is gone but they still work to clear blockages in sewers where they are half submerged in filth.  The stigma remains as they are still identified with the work they perform and considered untouchable and treated as such.  They have always been marginalized and treated as outcasts socially, economically and culturally.   Sweepers are now referred to as safai karamcharis or sanitary workers.

The Balmiki make up a cluster of communities – a few of whom are the Bhangi, Mehtar, Chuhra, Lal Beghi and Halalkhor.  They have united to form one community and claim a common origin from the saint Balmiki.  Balmiki is thought to be the first Sanskrit poet and author of the holy Hindu epic Ramayana and was brought up by a sweeper woman although he was a Brahmin (highest Hindu caste) mendicant’s son.

They were given names contrary to their position to give them dignity despite their lowly status – like Chuhra meaning beautiful and Mehtar, a Persian word meaning prince or leader.  However Bhangi, the most widely used name is a Hindi word meaning one addicted to drinking bhang (a drink made from marijuana leaves).

Location

These communities can be found throughout the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Delhi, Gujarat, and the union territory of Chandigarh where they are locally known by various names mentioned above.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Balmiki’s are employed as sweepers in municipalities, hospitals and government offices.  Some Balmiki are engaged in agricultural or contract labour.  Pig rearing, bamboo basketry, and poultry farming are some ancillary occupations.  Some Balmiki, such as the Mehtar men of Bihar, play drums at weddings and festivals, while women are midwives.

Post-independence, the Indian government’s affirmative action policies have seen an increase of Balmiki emerge as political leaders in regional and national levels.   A prominent example is Buta Singh, from the Bhangi community in Punjab, who was an MP in parliament from the early sixties and became a Union Minister of Home Affairs.  The Balmiki who work at municipalities have formed unions to help them be treated fairly.  The Balmiki have also formed an association for their caste at a national level called the All-India Safai Mazdoor Congress with a head office in Bombay and branches in other states.  The objectives of the association are to strengthen the economic, social, educational and political status of all sweeper castes in India and to remove all social discrimination.

Literacy rates among the Balmiki are low because they cannot afford it, though they view education favorably.  In recent years, especially in urban areas like Delhi, girls are educated.  They visit doctors and use traditional medicines as well.  They have begun to value and practice family planning.  They have started to utilize the government’s developmental programs provided for Scheduled Castes.

A major problem among the Balmiki is debt.  A common saying of the Bhangi is that they are born in debt, live in debt and will die in debt.  Social customs that require money for dowries, marriages, death rites, help for extended family and poor health all contribute to debt.  Money is borrowed from a money lender at very high interest rates.  Gambling is seen as a way out of poverty that leads them further in debt.

The Balmiki have a diet that includes wheat, millet and rice.  Pork is eaten by all and beef is eaten by Gujarati Balmiki’s.  Men drink homemade alcohol and women are allowed to drink at ritual celebrations only. The Balmiki accept water and food from almost all other communities but other communities make it a point not to reciprocate.  Wherever they are, the Balmiki live in squalid, overcrowded segregated areas.

Customs

The Balmiki practice group endogamy and clan or lineage exogamy.  Vermilion in the hair parting, a dot on the forehead and toe-rings are symbols for married women. They believe in monogamy and prefer adult marriages. The custom of dowry, given as cash and goods is given by the bride’s family.  Marriages are arranged by parents and elders.  Divorce is permissible.  Women are slightly better off in comparison to other lower caste women and participate actively in religious and social activities.  Both men and women work as sweepers.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Despite the abject position they hold in the Hindu caste system and in society, the Balmikis remain Hindu.  The Balmiki worship village and regional deities along with other Hindus.  As they are considered untouchable and not permitted entry to Hindu temples, they worship at Balmiki temples.  There are some localities that allow them entry.  Shiva and saint Balmiki are revered and Balmiki Jayanti (Balmiki’s birthday) is celebrated with a procession.  They worship a mother goddess called Masani who is thought to protect children from liver failure (caused by malaria and intestinal infection).  Animal sacrifices are offered to appease Masani and Kali (goddess who wears a necklace of human skulls).  Some others are Maha Mai (great mother) and Sitala (the smallpox goddess, who is believed to have cured the disease).  The Balmiki also believe in spirits and call on a Bhagat (a person who communicates with spirits) to pacify them.  The Bhagat identifies the problem and recommends a remedy which usually involves worship, a sacrifice and an offering to be made to the spirit.  Witchcraft and evil eye have other solutions.  Vows are also made at tombs of Muslim saints.

The Balmiki have tried for centuries to free themselves from the bondage to the degrading caste system by converting to Islam and Christianity.  In the 1880s and 1890s there were large scale conversions in western Uttar Pradesh which resulted in a marginal improvement in basic dignity and some economic gain.  It did not take long before they converted back to Hinduism on being offered inducements.  For example, the Mehtar of Karnataka embraced Islam to escape the stigma associated with their caste and returned to Hinduism in order to receive the benefits extended to Scheduled Castes in newly independent India’s constitution.  In the early 1900’s a Hindu organization called Arya Samaj was active in reconverting Balmiki’s to Hinduism.

What Are Their Needs?

The Balmiki need to be given dignity and freed from centuries of discrimination.  Poverty and illiteracy has to be eradicated.  Material needs have to be balanced with emotional and spiritual growth.

    • Dont worry my dear. Things will defenitely change by hard work and possitive mind set. Our community needs to be sufficiently aducated about the importance of education and good values in life. We still have very thin represntation in schools and still thinner in higher education as compared to other dalit communities. I had taken to this strugle and suceeded in rising up to a considerable higher post in my organization and also bringing up my childeren with good meaningful education where one of then is an engineer and the other one is an MBA from a very prestigious institution. The need of hour for us is to awake and awake early. Good luck.

    • Dear Satpal, my son, have faith on the almighty. Though I was born in so called high class brahmin family but I have also faced all type of acute powerty linked problems. I advise you to never leave your struggle and I believe that even in my life I will see the day when all Hindus will be equal, people of all castes will be eligible to become pujaris, there will be cross caste marriages and entire hindu society will be free from the cluthes of few religious contractors. Please note that Ravana had been a brahmin scholar killed by Lord Rama for his sins, Kewata was so called lower caste and most revered nad Maharshi Balmiki as you know was the great spiritual and scholar. So our religion is not basically birth based but Karma based and I suggest you to to bear this transition time for our great religion.good luch to you.

      I appreciate your opinion related to our Valmiki community. Hum aaj bhee pehli paydaan `shikshit bano’ ko hee paar nahi kar paaye. Shikshit nahi hone ke kayee karan ho sakte hai. Lekin aisa bhee nahi hai ki iss paydan ko logo ne paar nahi kiya hai. Isske aage ke sidhanto per toh baat karna lagbhag bekaar hi hai.
      Ab jo dour hai, ussme toh aur bhee mehnt aur sajagta kee jarurat hai. Ab teeno paydano ko saath lekar chalenge tabhee society me bane rah sakte hai. Bahut kuchh karna baaki hai.

  23. Myself is national general secretary in akhil bhartiya safai majdoor congress which is mainly connected with the balmikies in all over india. From my childhood I am living with this community It is my fortune that being a brahmin I have got chance to serve this community. During my visits in various cities and states I have seen rituals their living standards problems which are being faced maximum due to illiteracy. I think only 10 percent of the people who know the actual history and ethics of the community are seriously worried for the community. I think education is extreme need of this community. We have to change our minds and to be strict with the children as they could pass minimum graduation. We donot have to prefer the old rituals in which if child is not studying it would be better he brings something for the cooperation of the family. We have to discourage this types of things. One more thing is weaker in this community is economic condition. But some daring people with good economic conditions of the community are also sucking blood of the rest. It should be discouraged.

  26. one of the reasons of our backwardness is literacy rate is very low, secondly we don,t have any political face to represent us, surprisighly i just came to know that we constiute 16 % of indian population, its mean we can do wonders if we are united,thirdly i stronghly believes that there must be bifurcation with in reservation policy, as it was earlier in haryana and still in punjab govt, because it has been proved by an commitee of indian govt. which says reservation is not for the benefit of a specific caste/community it is for all the s.cs not for specific community, as in north india its majorly the jatavs who are capturing our seats.
    so govt. must look into this matter……….

  29. Comments of each one is full of zeal and cordiality. Still commitment to struggle for successful rise through proper skill and education at individual level and family level is prime condition to make a strong plateform and a successfull movement for rise of sweeper communityu can be possible. Let us resolve to choose one child for giving education in addition to our brothers , sisters and children.

    With grand salute to each one of you reading this to all others also.

  30. Hi Freinds,

    I am Rakesh Gohar I am also born in Bhangi Society. I know that bhangi caste is a very backword caste, for that various factor’s are responsible e.g. lower rate of education, drinking alchohol, lack of guaidance etc. etc. So for the improvement of this society it is necessary to understand them about the importance of education and disadvantages of alchhol. Because when they understand the importance of education at that time they admit there son’s and daughter’s in schools. And it will be helpful in the improvement of that caste. So I think education is the main point which is week point of that caste.

  31. Yes, I have seen that our people are progressing but the growth is very slow and to a limited extent..
    Our people should be made aware of the Government policies pertaining to SC/ST help and growth..
    Our people should know how they can get justice, education and discounts..
    Education is the only medium that can help us to stand in the crowd of these upper caste demons..
    Best of luck for all of you all..
    Jai Shri Balmiki Maharaj..

  36. My dear brothers/sisters, I believe that our community was/ is misguided by the cast hindus, as such we could not achieved the success at par with our elder brothers JATAVS. They have been following path of Baba Saheb Dr, B.R. Ambedkar whereas we have been hating from them and following the way shown by the caste hindus. Saying this that Jatavs are at the better position than Balmikies is wrong. They have devoted themselves to the Education and hardwarking whereas we were enjoying KORMA and kept our selves from Education. The new generation have noticed this and our young talents can be seen everywhere. I would like to request those Phalwans who are residing in Balmiki dominating Basties and indulging in anti social activities, may go to in those areas/ villages where the caste hindus harass us and commit atrocities upon our people like MIRCHPUR Village in Haryana and show your mussel power rather to defame the name of our community.

  39. Balmikis were never Hindus. These were natives of India, were made slaves by upper castes to work dirtiest work for them and kept out of villages. Any reader has knowledge of history- can challenge it. It was only during British raj people got education, health taken care, employment and dignity as human being were given.When they got upliftment, naturally they started converting to Christianity also. They were sitting in Offices as Babus where upper caste people had to come. Sometime they had to wish them gently as they were working under British rulers. Many time they did not wanted to wish. These upper caste people that they all will come on top posts after education once it was their domain only and moreover they would came in minority if these people keep on moving to other best religions. Post independence, they decided to bring back to their religion as to become majority group and keep them remain backward/oppressed. Hindus worship human idols and same is given to this group now called Balmiki.Otherwise, Hindus have no relations with Balmikis and hate them. If they have grow, they have to grow with their own efforts.

  53. my dear balmiki brothers, i somehow came in contact with this page and read all the comments above,it gave me immense pleasure to knw about the keennes u guys have to serve for ur community,m jatav by caste bt i believe dat the real change wil come wen each and every SC caste wil b empowered and educated,first of al v shoud get united as the sayng goes ‘united v stand and divided v fall’,the main prob is the lack of unity,and the only solution for the problem is movements,v need atleast 100 movement to change the mindset of our people and other masses of india, our mobility is very slow that is becoz of lack of protests and movements,after ambedkar movement v havent indulged any movmnt on big scale,resulted in manual scavenging stil present,so guys my point here is v should be united and change our identity from dalit as it is very derogating,secondly v shoud do protest for dignity not for reservation al the time,conversion is not the solution, plz join me wid your valuable feedbacks,,thanks,

    We afraid to discolse our cast in front of the society or people????
    It clearly shows that some were we feel that our cast is small. As comapre to other cast and if our cast is samll in our eye and make us weak.Till the time we can’t bring our cast and other cast on the same page. Sharam chhodo aur gurve se kaho. Jai valmiki.

    Do you know what is the biggest issue nd lack of our community have is the unity .
    Hum logo me ekta naam ki chiz hi nai h …
    Aap dusri castes ko deko gujar ye log 300 400saal pahele kya the or aj ye apni ekta ya unity k wajah se kaha pahoch gae h

As we are considered untouchable and we could’t enter to Hindu’s temples please don’t worship there, We have to worship at Balmiki temples.We make up a cluster of communities – a few of whom are the Bhangi, Mehtar, Chuhra, Lal Beghi and Halalkhor. We should make one community and worship a common origin the saint Balmiki. Some People always said balmiki belongs to other caste please……. Can u prove it .Otherwise stop saying that.All community should worship Lord Balmiki. Please read about Mahatma Darshan Ratan Ravana. He is Our real well wiser. Jai BALMIKI , JAI BHEEM………………….

  79. this page is just deteriorating the image of the community and u all are just helping it do u know ur true history.
    go to wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balmiki_sect
    Balmiki or Valmiki (Nepali: बाल्मिकी, Vālmīki) is a indegenous people of india sect of Hinduism centered on the sage Valmiki. The community is found through out the country and it is in history that this class used to be the class of warriors there plight is because they fought to save hindu religion during mughal era where other communities so called upper castes have denied themselves to be hindu at that time from the fear of mughals. They told as the mughals are from outside they too were from outside land and indruded the country before. They Worship Valmiki as their ancestor and God.
    Valmiki composes the Ramayana
    Valmikis believe that he was an Avatar of God, and they consider his works, the Ramayana and the Yoga Vasistha, as their holy scripture. In the state of Andhra Pradesh, Valmikis are referred to as Boyas. The titles of the Boyas are said to be Naidu or Nayudu, Naik, Dora, Dorabidda (children of chieftains), and Valmiki.

    After reading what Omprakash valmiki highlighted to the world like (a common saying of the Bhangi is that they are born in debt, live in debt and will die in debt, and also written all Valmiki work as sweeper) many thoughts are coming to my mind. Is Omprakash a true Valmiki. Is he trying to uplift the valmiki community or let them down. He has ignored all the Valmiki people who work as officer, judges, solicitors, teachers, clerks, farm owners,transport owners and many more. I thing Omprakash is not trying to help Valmiki community to improve their status in the society but he is making sure the world know all the bad things about us. I think every community have bad and good things in themselves. Actually, the present situation of our community we have is, due to the invasions that took place in India. English history book called “The last two million years” states that present untouchables are the natives (Real Indians or Adivasi) of India also many other history books states the same. History books also states the Aryans came to India as nomads in 2000 BC from Iran and brought in with them language Sanskrit also Rigveda their religious book. Many other invasions took place as follow: Alexander the great from present Macedonia in 327BC
    Arabian invasion began from 700BC
    Mahmud Ghazni invaded India in 1001
    Timur from Turkey invaded some parts of India in 1398 also
    Portuguese in 1498
    Mughals in 1526
    French in 1687
    English in 1757
    All of them invaded India and their army personnel never went back they still are here living in India. All them communities who hate us they came from other countries that is the reason why they hate us. I ask all our people please unite, become the member of your village or city sabha and make sure you play your part to uplift our community. It is not impossible. Always unite for justice and have them punished who commit atrocities on our community. Educate our children. Peaceful way is the best way to achieve something.
    JAI VALMIKI.

      I am proud to share this blog vary first time.

      I think we have biggest and wide working force in ourcommunity but we and our leaders are not able to give them proper directions. As you know very less percentage of women is working in every caste but in Valmiki community our 90% women are working. But definitely on low level. Is there any women power holding community like this ? Its tremendous. We just need to give directions. We have pigery work but no farms, we have shops but no slaughter house, we have traditional dhol and Taasha players but no musician, we have brave fighting boys but no chakra vijeta. We have safai karmis but no sanitation company. These are all the examples of discrimination with us. But this situation is rapidly improving. We have lots of doctos, engineers, lawyers, IAS officers but all are hiding their caste. It makes us low prifile community. But be hopeful and do better to improve ourself…..RAJIV KUMAR LOHAT.

    I m arun parcha from noida,M.A.,govt employee.I really felt proud and motivated when i read ur visionary and revolutionary views.I think there are only two weaknesses in our society i.e.lack of education and lack of unity.Don’t forget the level/ status of jatav just 20-30 years ago they were below to us but they have given the right and adequate education to there children,thats why even jatav’s are treating themselves as GENERALS.It is only the education which has uplifted them.Thats why they are also taking the 90 percent of govt.jobs.Guys this is the high time we educate our children and give them a better future.
    Jai Bhim Jai Valmiki.

      • You informed that your family is highly educated and progressed to high status.
        Grand salute to the vision and mission of your elders who made you all so highly educated to reach and to such high posts; nevertheless your own sincere hard work & that of each of you is also the prime factor for your success.
        I feel immense pride that people of Balmiki community like you though not high in number, have done good progress despite too many odds & obstacles.
        I recently retired from a Govt Undertaking, my son is
        Gazetted Officer.
        Below are some examples out of many initiatives I could try successfully without any obligation & burden on anybody, it was duty & it is my prime duty as I feel I under social Debt
        Along with me during my education in boyhood I tried to give support to Balmiki boys to get educated & upto some extent results very good. Thereafter during in service tried to give free SUNDAY English & Maths coaching which proved success story. During Lunch break I used to teach Peons & sweepers.
        During my tenure of service I got exposure in different states & places. I could be successful to extend facilities to Balmiki people also No of times to all sweepers of municipality along with other Govt employees to get them out of clutches of money lenders; It was successful venture which became a point of envoy too in the area. One boy from Rajasthan and one boy from UP were supported they are successful, one of them is manager in UP.
        In NUH in one meeting in I gave on spot Cash scholarship for top 3 Balmiki Students; selection of students and delivery of cash was left to the community people
        Now my idea is to sponsor from my pension annual scholarship to needy students and to go to nearby localities to give free coaching.
        All above were easy tasks, it is not big thing to boast of. I am sure & trust such easy & simple acts are being done by you all too at your levels.
        Logically it can be concluded that:
        1- It is not difficult to identify needy Balmiki people.
        2- Let us ensure respect for Daughters, Sisters, Women and
        Elders as well as affection for juniors and who are below
        3- No attempt is small, it is never late. KARAWAN BANEGA.
        4- Recall some noble person & congenial environment helped
        us and we are so much successful.
        5- Counting thorns or flowers – it is individual choice.
        6- Even small & little example is better than big precept.

        Regret for lengthy matter and beg pardon for any lapse at my end.

        With warm and humble regards to you, your family, to readers and to good wishes to their children.

        HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY.

    Many of empires/kings ruled the places called Bellary, Pavagada, madhugiri, Chitradurga, many more places in Karnataka and Kalyandurg,rayadurgam, Penukonda in AP which all places had forts. We are not belongs to lower caste, some people are working as sweepers, cleaners . based on their work, social circumstances called them as lower caste.We are not Dalit also. Technically proved that Sri KrishnaDevaraya also from Valmiki group. We are belongs to valmiki mahsrshi the author of the great Indian epic Ramayana, was a Hindu sage. So please do not think that we are belongs to lower/schedule/dalit caste. As I already said we are great warriors during Indian epic.Proud to say that Valimiki catse..

  119. Every participant has given brilliant views and deserves salute.
    Logically it may concluded that:
    1- Requisite quality education and knowledge should be thrust target.
    2- Gap of Non updation of knowledge and lack of knowledge is to be
    plugged.
    3- Constructive result oriented support minimum to one in a year.
    4- Respect and honour to daughters, sisters, women and elders.
    5- Affectionative & due regardful support for who are left behind.
    6- Curtailing avoidable extravagant spending on functions.
    7- Even little & small example is better than big precept.
    8- Even small initiative is sufficient, it is never late.
    9- It is easy & simple to extend help, even small help will do wonder.
    10-Further easy is to identify needy Balmiki student for free coaching,
    small amount of stipend as token of respect & encouragement.

    Above are the time tested and successful steps which gave live results.
    Counting thorns or the flowers- it is individual choice.

    With humble regards everybody, their family and good wishes to the children. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY.
