History

H.A. Rose [1] has mentioned that Bajolia is found in The Khandelwals who are few in number. They have 72 gots, the principal one in Nabha State being the Bajolia. They claim to have come from Khatu Khandela in Jaipur. The barat in this group also arrives the day before the wedding but the boy's father has to feed the bard himself on that day. Like the Ahirs the Khandelwals on the widai day have a special custom. The women of the bride's family cloths the boy's father in yellow clothes and put a pitcher of water on his head, with a necklace of camel's dung round his neck and compel him to go and worship the well just as the women do. He only escapes after much teasing by paying them from 11 to 51 rupees. They do not wear the janeo, and as they are devotees of Bhagwan Das, Mahatma, of Tikha in the Bawal Thana they do not smoke or sell tobacco.
