1.1. The indian Roots
Nowadays, it is considered a proven fact that the Roma originated in India, but why did no historians investigate the Roma history before their arrival in Europe? Possibly because the prejudice is considered as “correct” that the Roma simply are Nomads. But that is wrong. The Roma never exhibited a typically Nomad behavior, it was always banishment, flight, trade or the maintenance of social and familial structures that kept them on their way.
This book is based on twelve years of preparation and triage and eight months of intensive research, and for the first time in the history of the Roma it will show a prejudice-free detailed concept of the history of a multi-lateral Indo-European people with a population of at least 15 million in Europe.
In the 11th century, several smaller kingdoms existed in Northern India, the Gurjara and the Rajput Confederation were two of them.
They were feudal societies with a warrior- and a landowner-caste, and the supporting population who had to do the day-to-day labor. Some were peasants, others worked with animals, as for example the training of horses for the warrior caste, which also fought as a cavallery; others were craftsmen, silver- or goldsmiths or blacksmiths building weapons; in short, all professions you need for a functioning society.
Every of these sub-castes of the population had a special profession, which had to only be practiced by this certain family or clan. This was part of the Hindu religions known by the name of “Laws of the Manu” (“Manush” means “human” in Romanes).
Many groups in the described region belonged to a caste that called itself Domba [Dom (man) and Domni (woman) – in Romanes, up until today it is Rom (man) and Romni (woman)], which then meant “human”.
The only people in Europe that never led a war on its own, thus the most peaceful people in Europe.
