Hinduism - Who Are The Mali Among The Hindu Jatis?

 

Traditional Indian society was made up of jatis ("births"), which were endogamous subgroups (i.e., marriages were only permitted between members of the same group by law).

The hereditary occupation of each group, over which each group had a monopoly, was used to arrange the jatis (and to establish their social standing).

The Malis' ancestral employment in old northern Indian civilization was managing gardens, producing flowers, and crafting flower garlands (mala).
