Before Indian Independence
The village as inhabited by Bhaskar Jats. The Sikar Darbar gifted this village to Baba Chetan Das and hence it was called Swami ki Birodi. The village was dominated by Bhaskar Jats and later on a Pilania Jat family migrated to this village.
Post Indian Independence
After Indian independence the village was renamed as Chhoti Birodi because of its small area. Farmers of this village have their farms in other villages as well. The villagers are very progressive and they have instituted various revolutionary social reforms to keep up with times. In particular, they have
(1) Stopped post death ritual expenditure (kharach). Although, there is no basis for post death feast in any Hindu holy book; this superstitious tradition had become prevalent in some parts of India. Under this ceremony the family of the deceased would organize a feast on a certain day after the death to facilitate deceased entry into heaven. However, Brahmins swear for absolute need for the ceremony. Not surprisingly, the greatest beneficiaries were Brahmins who would corner the major portion of the offerings. Villagers have instituted a ban on this today. Instead, those who wish to spend money in remembrance of their family members are encouraged to donate money for common purpose.
(2) Dowry is generally discouraged. Although the practice has not stopped altogether, the villagers are in agreement to stop this tradition.
(3) No liquor shop in the village. This step was taken because a few villagers would spend all their money on liquor, while their families would go hungry. Initially any villager found drunk was fined, however this was not not found to be very successful as there were fights.
