There are so many communities in India but we hardly know about them. Their culture and tradition give us an idea about a part of our history. I recently came to know about a community named Pasi. I read that Pasis claim their ancestry from Vedic sage Bhrigu.

The majority of this community is found in Indian states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. They are also scattered in Gujarat, Harayana, Punjab, Maharashtra, Delhi, West Bengal and Odisha.

As far as I know, the Parsi community migrated from Iran to India in the 10th Century when the Muslims invaded their country. These people worshiped the God of Fire or the Sun. In the later years, they slowly migrated to Europe and other countries. They practically led a nomad`s life moving around Europe in horse drawn wagons. They were a close community moving in big groups. They do not bury the dead instead they let the bodies be eaten by vultures.

Earlier, the pasi people were considered untouchables. They were considered outside the Hindu ritual ranking system known as varna. Their traditional occupation was rearing pigs. However, over the years, things have changed and many of them are now engaged in businesses, private sectors, government service etc.

Aman Saxena, please accept my apologies. I thought Pasi and Parsi are the same people. Sorry I have not heard about the Pasi people. I withdraw my comments made earlier.

Hey Maniam, it is absolutely okay. No issue. Please don`t feel about my comment. It is quite natural to think this way as both the names are almost same.
