you ever heard of Gypsies? Do you know that they really exist?
Over one thousand years ago, Muslim soldiers attacked part of northwestern
India and groups of Hindus with similar languages came together to resist
the exile. They called themselves the Rajput. When they were
defeated, they were forced to leave their home country and later became
known as the Romani people. The people moved around Europe quite
a bit but never truly assimilated into local culture. They kept their
language and their culture alive and often kept to themselves. This
often brought about distrust and fear. This is the story of the Romani
people and seeks to explain their beliefs and the life style.
