Dhobi

Who are they?

Traditionally, the Dhobi are washer men. The name dhobi is derived from the Hindi dhona (to wash). The Dhobi were considered ‘untouchables’ – the lowest castes in the Hindu social hierarchy. India’s independence brought about a new constitution that lifted this age-old stigma of impurity. The new designation provides the Dhobi people with a host of benefits and quotas in various government schemes and jobs.

They are a large community, widely distributed across northern, central, western and eastern India.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Dhobi follow their traditional occupation of washing and ironing clothes. Some of the better-off Dhobi own dry-cleaning shops. It is common to find the local Dhobi at a convenient distance in every neighborhood. In villages they tend to occupy specified quarters from where they offer their laundering services.

In addition to working as launderers, some are engaged in cultivation and other subsidiary occupations like animal husbandry, business and skilled and unskilled labour. In the heavily forested state of Assam the subsidiary occupations include carpentry and sawing of timber. In recent years, many have joined government service at various levels helped by the official affirmative action policies.

Literacy levels among the Dhobi are low and child labour exists among them. In economically less advanced states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan the literacy rate is only 20% due to poverty and social restrictions. In the more prosperous states of Haryana and Punjab, the Dhobi are receptive to family planning methods.

Unlike most Hindus of India, the Dhobi do not tend to be vegetarian. However, some Muslim Dhobi, as those in Chandigarh do not eat beef, even though there is no religious prohibition against it. In addition to meat, their staple food includes wheat, rice, maize, lentils, vegetables and fruit. Alcohol is consumed by the men.

Customs

Women have a low status in the community and have no right over ancestral property, while male children are given equal rights. However, in the union territory of Daman and Diu, which was formerly a Portuguese colony, the Dhobi follow Portuguese law in matters related to inheritance. Under this law, half the property of the deceased goes to his widow, while the other half is equally distributed amongst his sons. Women take active part in the traditional occupation of washing and ironing of clothes but are subservient to their men in all family matters. Their role in society is minimal at best.

Endogamy (marriage within a specific group as required by custom or law) is usually the norm at community or group level. But, in certain states, marriages now routinely take place between groups that were once barred from each other.

Previously, child marriage was acceptable but now the age for marriage has increased gradually. Girls usually marry between the ages of fourteen to twenty years and boys commonly marry at sixteen to twenty five years. Marriages are arranged by family. Monogamy is the norm but a man can have a second wife if his first wife is barren. The Dhobi still observe the custom of paying a bridal dowry; this is usually in cash or in goods – a bartered settlement between families using whatever is considered as appropriate value in animals or other items of trade.

Divorce is traditionally allowed except in some Indian states. Widows are permitted to remarry and it is also acceptable for a widow to marry the younger brother of her deceased husband (or for a widower to marry his deceased wife’s younger sister).

What Are Their Beliefs?

While the majority of the Dhobi are Hindu, there are Muslim Dhobi too. The Muslim Dhobi people follow the tenets of Islam in that they practice circumcision for boys, bury their dead, and venerate the shrines of Muslim saints.

The Dhobi in Punjab and Haryana worship Hindu gods like Rama, Krishna, Hanuman and Shiva. Those of Rajasthan have the ‘landing place’ of Lord Siva (or pond where they wash clothes) as their principal deity. In Orissa the Dhobi worship family gods. They celebrate all Hindu festivals as Holi (festival of colours) and Diwali (festival of lights) but they are segregated from taking part in various aspects of the festival of colours with the higher caste Brahmin and Rajput.

The Dhobi believe in spirits and witchcraft. They utilise the services of religious mendicants (beggars) who practice magic. These generally belong to their community. The dead are cremated and the ashes are scattered in rivers. A Brahmin (highest Hindu caste) priest performs their marriage ceremonies and other life-cycle rituals.

What Are Their Needs?

The stigma of the untouchables remains in spite of the new laws of the land. They need formal education and basic amenities like clean drinking water and medical assistance, especially in remote rural areas.

  19. Dear All,

    I belong to Dhobi sub-cast and want to make a point through this blog:

    We have been provided protection through certain legislations for what?
    Even today we are grown up by our parents telling us that we are from this particular community. Upper caste people had unleashed extreme attrocities on our forefathers. We are just creating seclusion for ourselves by holding the caste flag forever. No body can prevent us from the benefits of legislations. Thereafter, we need to have vision, work hard for our organisations and to excel like any other. Today’s world is of global economy and we should view ourselves in that context. Every caste has people groups raising flags for their respective caste and we are no exception. But this is not going to make us any better other than creating self seclusion. Every cast has broadminded people also. Try to mingle with them without hesitations(admit proudly that U belong to SC as this not going to change during your lifetime, but avoid telling everywhere of your special category where there is no requirement) when you are already putting your best foot at your work. Don’t confined to you own caste groups. You will get appreciated and would create a halo around yourself of similar better people. Try to use the situation to benefit your people(it doesn’t means people only having caste flags in their hands and cursing other castes for their situation without yearning to work hard). Enterprenureship should be encouraged as only sarkari naukri alone is not going to reap all the benefits.

    Every country, groups, society, class have good and bad things. There is no use being proud of country, group, society etc. as a whole. We should be proud of good things, people, deeds. And in order to be better a better understanding and effort is required.
    This is my humble suggestion

  29. Debuji Zhingraji Janorkar (February 23, 1876 – December 20, 1956) popularly known as Sant Gadge Maharaj or Gadge Baba (Hindi: गाडगे बाबा) was a saintly social reformer, a wandering mendicant who held weekly festivals with the help of his disciples across Maharashtra. His reforms and visions for villages in India is still a source of inspiration for various political parties and non-government organizations.
    Life and career
    His original name was Debuji’. Maharaj was born in Shedgaon village in Anjangaon Surji Taluka in Amravati District of Maharashtra to a Dhobi family. A public teacher, he travelled from one place to another wearing his food pan upturned on his head and carrying his trademark broom. When he entered a village, he would instantly start cleaning the gutters and roads of the village. He also told the citizens of the village that their congratulations would have to wait until his work was done. Villagers gave him money, babaji use that for progress of physical as well as thinking of society. From the money, Maharaj built educational institutions, dharmasalas, hospitals and animal shelters.
    He conducted his discourses in the form of “Kirtans” (a form of discourse which includes devotional songs by Saints) in which he would emphasize values like service to humanity and compassion. During his Kirtans, he would educate people against blind faiths and rituals. He would use Dohas.
    He exhorted people to stop animal sacrifice as part of religious rituals and campaigned against vices such as alcohol abuse.
    He tried to embody the values that he preached: hard work, simple living and selfless service to the poor. He abandoned his family (a wife and three children) to
    pursue this path.

  34. Hello guys I’m praveen.belongs to dhobi caste.home town uttar Pradesh..Preparing for civil services .
    Aim
    :to unite all people of my caste and provide them adequate opportunity so that their conditions can be improved.
    Vision
    Help them to obtains maximum benefits from reservations.
    Diversification of occupation means help them to move into different sectors like media,business etc.
    Create job opportunities for them.
    To create strong social leader among dhobi caste ,as it is in other caste like chamar(mayawati,kanshiram),mahar(ambedkar),jat (chautala,hooda),brahmin(arun jaitely,sushma swaraj),rajput(raj nath Singh,amar Singh),Yadav(mulayam,akhilesh)etc.
    Problem
    :dhobi people are highly fragmented not united,fight and abuse each other,indulge in bad habits like drinking,playing cards,poor conditions in northern regions.
    Solutions:
    To build sense of awareness among them about politics,social,economics,
    Establish strong and social relationship among them,
    Collectively vote for single party,unite as biggest vote bank of their region.
    Rise above the inqualities among them.help and understand each other.
    It can’t be done alone,require sincere efforts from all the people of dhobi caste.
