Who are they?

The Bari, also known as Rawat and Paanwale (betel-leaf sellers), are a community of household servants and makers of leaf-plates.

Location

They live in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Bihar.  In Bihar they are also known as Donwar. Ethnologists, Russel and Hiralal, describe the Bari as an offshoot of semi-savage, forest tribes known as the Banmanush (wild man of the woods) and Musahar.

Origin

This community emphasizes their kinship with the brave hero Rupana Bari, who is mentioned in the folk epic Alha, and offers the following legend about the origin of their community. One day when Vishnu was offering rice-milk to the spirits of his ancestors, he also offered a gift called vikraya dan to some Brahmin priests who did not accept his gift. Vishnu made a man of clay, blew on the image and gave it life. He named his creation Sundar (handsome one) and offered him the same gift. Sundar was the first Bari, and he agreed to accept the gift on condition that all men should drink with him and recognize the purity of his caste. Vishnu asked him to bring a cup of water which he drank in the presence of all castes, thereby establishing the Bari’s pure status.

According to another legend from Maharastra, at the time of the sagar manthan (churning of the sea) – a huge white elephant was birthed with a betel creeper around its leg. This was the first betel-leaf plant and it was given to the Bari for cultivation, and has since then remained a source of livelihood for them.

The Bari place themselves in the middle of the Hindu social caste order but higher castes, however, consider them a low caste, though not ‘untouchable’.

Language

The Bari speaks the languages of their regions.  They speak Marathi in Maharashtra, the dialect of Awadhi in Uttar Pradesh and Bhojpuri in Bihar.  In Rajasthan Mewari is their mother tongue.  In all these states, they are also conversant with Hindi and use the Devanagari script.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The traditional and present occupation of most Bari is making leaf-plates and leaf-cups.  In Madhya Pradesh they also serve as household servants and have a reputation for loyalty.  There is a saying about them – the Bari will die fighting for his master.

In western Maharashtra, they are mostly betel-leaf growers.  In Rajasthan, they were once employed as servants to royal families but they now trap and catch birds in the forests, make reed chairs and stools, wire cages, glass temples, paper flowers, as well as leaf plates and cups.  In Bihar, they carry gas or electric lights at wedding celebrations.

A few Bari practice agriculture, but most are landless. Many Bari now live in urban slums and are engaged in small business, tailoring, rickshaw-pulling, cart driving, and accepting such work as they can find from day to day. Child labour is prevalent and wages are paid in cash as well as kind.

The Bari people are not vegetarian but they do not eat beef due to their Hindu beliefs. Wheat, rice and jowar (a kind of millet that is more affordable than wheat or rice) are their staple cereals which are supplemented by a variety of lentils. When they can afford them, they enjoy fruit and vegetables. Alcoholic drinks are taken, as are cigarettes, chewing tobacco and paan (rolled betel-leaf with a filling of areca nut, rose root and lime).

Literacy levels are very low, except in Maharashtra, and they have only recently begun sending their children to school. For minor ailments they use indigenous medicines, otherwise they prefer to go to clinics. They are aware of family planning but it is usually the women who undergo sterilization to limit the family size.

Customs

The Bari is endogamous, i.e., they marry only within their community. They are divided into a number of subdivisions depending on the region they inhabit.  For example in Maharashtra there are five subdivisions among them, namely, Golait, Suryabansi, Kumardag, Lingayat and Gondhli, while in Rajasthan there are four, Moonjiya, Teliya, Suwar and Salat Bari. There are also a number of clans of equal status among the Bari which serve to regulate marriage alliances.  They are strictly exogamous, i.e. no one can marry within his or her clan.

Marriages are arranged by negotiations among the seniors of both families and monogamy is the prevalent form. Both adult and child marriages are practised.  In the case of the latter gaona – the ceremonial departure of the bride to live with her husband at his house takes place after the girl reaches puberty. She wears symbols of marriage which are sindur (vermilion), kalipot (black-bead necklace), and bichua (toe-ring).  Divorce and remarriage are socially approved but rare. Dowry is given in goods, and is a recent trend.

The Bari community lives in both joint and nuclear families. The parental property is inherited equally by all the sons, of whom the eldest succeeds to the father’s authority. The daughters traditionally do not get any share in the inheritance.

In addition to attending to all the housework such as cooking, and carrying drinking water, as well as looking after the children, the Bari women contribute to the family income by taking additional jobs or helping their men in their trade. Their status is low as compared to the men. They perform specific roles in the social and religious spheres especially during festivals, domestic worship and in marriage rituals.

The Bari has formed community welfares associations in the different states they reside in.  In Uttar Pradesh their associations are the Akhil Bharatiya Bari Samaj (All Indian Association) and Janapad Bari Sabha (District Council) which are involved in initiating social reforms in the community. In Maharashtra the association is called the Chandrapur Zila Bari Samaj (District Association), while the council in Madhya Pradesh is controlled by their educated elite.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Bari profess Hinduism and worship most of the deities of the Hinduism such as Shiva (Destroyer in the Hindu trinity), Vishnu (the benign Preserver of the Hindu trinity), Rama (seventh incarnation of Vishnu), Hanuman (celibate monkey god, protector from all dangers and devoted follower of Rama) and Nag Devta (serpent god).  In addition, they worship family and village deities.  In Rajasthan the Baris are Shakti (power – signifying the dynamic female counterpart of a male deity) worshippers.  They worship Kali and Durga.  In Uttar Pradesh, goddess Durga is one of their main deities.

The Bari celebrate Hindu festivals like Holi (spring festival of colors) and Dussehra (which celebrates Rama’s victory over the demon king Ravana), Diwali (Festival of Lights) and Navratri (Festival of Nine Nights honouring Durga).   They also celebrate Makar Sankranti, a New Year festival observed around the winter solstice.  In Rajasthan, on the day after Holi, the Bari sacrifice a goat on Kali’s altar while on the ninth day of Navratri they sacrifice on Durga’s altar.  On Makar Sankranti, sesame seeds mixed with jaggery are exchanged among the people of the Bari community.

The Bari cremates their dead and the ashes are immersed in a river, preferably the sacred Ganges. Small children up to five years of age are buried. They observe death pollution for a specific period, usually twelve days, and a feast is given at the end of it. Ancestor worship is also prevalent.

  3. Origin

    The community get their name from the Sanskrit word vari meaning water. According to their traditions, they were the lords of the waterways. The Bari are likely to be sub-group of the Kewat community. They claim descent from Kirat Bari, an soldier in the army of Maharana Pratap. The community is now found mainly in eastern and southern Uttar Pradesh, and speak the Awadhi dialect.[1] Bari were also known as Sharaswat Brahmins in the era of Lord Sri Ram of Ayodhya. They useto cook food for Lord Sri Ram and called as “Bar”. Due to lack of education they shifted to other sub clans which was associated with “sisodiya” of Rajput Clan in the middle age of India. They are known to be very trustworthy with the kings and they are very trustworthy for their owners. In the history of Rajput they lost life for their king in the battlefield. They also claim descent from Rupan Bari, an soldier in the army of [Alha udal].Rupan Bari details available in the fold song called Alha and very popular in Southern Uttar Predesh. Bari people are very reserve and spend their whole life in serving their owners and in return they never ask for land , that is why most of the Bari people were landless. Bari spent many year in forest because of fear of killings by Mugals and their subordinates in India. They adopted business of leaves and started making “leaf crockery” for their livehood. Bari also do trading of PAN leaves in state like Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

  7. BARI in JAIPUR

    Bari is a caste of human civilization. Their occupation is to stitch together large leaves by the insertion of small wooden pegs. In fact, the Bari’s are said to be the makers of Hindu crockery.

    The leaf-plates and dishes prepared by the Bari people form a considerable item in the daily expenses of respectable families. These are used to hold the food. During festive occasions broad platters of leaves prepared by the Bari people are used in great quantity.

    Still it is live like of JAIPUR’S BARI.

  8. Straight word , that ,
    Bari generated by lord vishnu,
    but why bari’s life so struggle,
    bari is a power of lord vishnu ,and sacred person in this world, by Lord vishnu….

    Bari is unique, but why some brahman’s rule push bari in low caste…..
    This is bad for bari’s caste….
    when bari is sacred, why bari work just like a servant…..
    *************************************************************************
    My soul think that lot of burdens on bari , in ancient time….
    My heart think that bari is a so sacred caste in this world, decided by lord vishnu….

    • Bari is a gr8 fighters and warrior on that time,and now a days also.
      But only male person
      I want in future whole bari mean maximum bari , take a lot of vedic knowledge and high education ,worship of god and good culture for make a nice family.
      I see that now a days , mostly girls and womans in bari break the family,why?
      because she is alone in their life,but not maintain heer husband family…
      In 100% only 5-10% maintain a family…
      ******************************************************
      I know when i talk about bari,rajput there is a dividation of caste,mean dividation of humanity.
      but i think according to sacred caste help the low people for making their nice life.
      No selfish nature included in bari. Mostly Male person , really it’s 100% true,maintain a family and understand the soul of other.
      Because Gorya Baba mean First Bari,which is originate by Sri Lord Vishnu.
      Lord Vishnu has a several faces and different names.
      But Power is unique.
      ,Mean to say that,In this time also Bari caste read a whole vedas , in ancient time Brahman’s and lot of person’s who avoid to read this sacred book . But Now a time that , Vedas gives a High Soul Knowledge…..So I focus on that topic, and Now a days , I see mostly in Bari that a girls see a Color Code also Family see a color code,mean (Black and White) what is this , and also see a High / Low Post….(I request to all of you that , pls make your family nice mean by heartly nice .)

      • Dear Manish,
        I totally disagree with the comment about Bari’s current situation, they are true warrior and molding the future on decent track, now people are from all caste are educated, living and earning a good life, girls are also doing well, the only lacking thing you can say is unity. may be u can put stress on this. people are distributed all over in lack of a good unite SAMAJ may be you heard some upsetting things about Bari girls.
        anyways my point is make a good community and adopt decent peoples. we dont need any reservations even our ancestors has never taken anything from anyone so we but we will give lot to the world. That’s the “Warrior Bari”

  10. some information that bari samaj belongs to mushar or bari samaj belongs to kewat is 100% wrong.bari samaj origin & relation is with lord vishnu& rama as it is mentioned above. our peaple are realy brave and honest as it is mentioned above.but they do not change them with time.they always thought only for their kings and their bosses. but now its the time to become boss &and rule,. like the other samaj in india is doing. its the time to come under one roof and unite .
    The talent,strength. of our samaj is destroyed by brahmin and thaur or the rajput .so we must alert ,and work for our samaj by tan.man..dhan se

It is the necessity of time to organise and create a new direction for our community, our society and the nation. though we are in all field ie bureaucracy, law, profession, business but we are not success to make a space in politics. Politics can give popularity to our society. So the endeavour in this field is necessary in the interest of our community.

  25. Like other castes of the society concerned literature/written information is not available about our bari society so it is the responsbilty of bari samaj to work on this issue so that a written information could be provide to our society. There is very few people of bari samaj who are computer savy so the information given on this site is reaching to very limited people. If a literature could available, it can reach in remote area too. I can cooperate in to make booklet or book on our society if a full information is given to me

  37. Bari Community now a days is developed community in India.Most of the members of said community are doctors,engineers,advocates,chartered accountants and also having Head posts in Govt.Department.
    So it could not be said that the said community is of lower class but achieved the rank of higher class.It is true that the said community is creature of Lord Vishnu.The said community is purely Hindu Community and most of the member of these community in Maharashtra are vegetarian and trusts in God.
    The information is very good and important for Bari community.
    I want to suggest that every member of the community must be live in integrity and do the work for the community to rise a mighty community.

    • HISTORY OF BARI SAMAJ
      Origin of Bari Samaj

      The Bari community get their name from the Sanskrit word “vari” meaning water. According to mythological texts, Bari were also known as sharaswat Brahmins in the era of Rama Of Ayodhya. Bari used to cook for Rama and called as “Bar”. Due to social problems Bari shifted to other sub clans which was associated with “Sisodiya” of Rajput clan in the middle age of india. In the history of Rajput Bari lost life for their king in the battlefield. Bari also claim descent from Rupan Bari,a soldier in the army of [alha udal].Rupan Bari details available in the folk song called Alha & very popular in southern uttarpardesh.

      Bari spent many years in forest because of fear of killing by Mughals and their subordinates in india.Bari adopted business of leaves and started making “leaf Crockery”for their livehodd.Bari also do trading of Pan leaves in state of Maharastra & Madhya Pradesh. The Bari speaks the language of their region.Major population of Bari live the state Uttar Pradesh,Maharastra,Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan & Bihar.

      Now the people of our community marching ahead with the progress & now we are found in government services, Business & other sectors. People of our community are now focused on education of their children & claim themselves as “kshtriya”. People of our community are now in business & working with other communities. Bari classified as OBC (Other backward class) in Uttar Pradesh , Rajasthan, Haryana, & delhi.community use the surname like Bari, Rawat, Singh, Prasad, singh & thakur.

      Prominent Bari from the History :
      Veer Shiromani Rupan Bari.
      Veer Kirat Bari
      Raja shiv din singh Bari
      Veer tawakal bari
      Bhagwati Prasad Bari (freedom fighter)

  41. Aap Sabhi Ghanisht Jano ko sadar charana sparsh,

    Wikipedia page ” Bari (caste)” ko jaroor padhe aur dusro ko bhi batayein .

    Some of the information given in other websites – like bari people used to carry lamps and other accessories in marriage parties “barat” is not true. It is beyond our pride to do such things for a living.

    In order to educate our children , let us choose the Bari or Rawat title as surnames. Let our elders tell the stories of Rupan bari from alah-udal fights and other proud stories of great warier ” Kirat Bari” who was a complete devout of our beloved Maharana Pratap Singh of Mewar.
