Marwadis are the people from Rajasthan in India. Though Marwari as a genre originated from a place name, the Marwadi people have spread to many regions of India and all over the World with their powerful skill of Business as they expanded their business and trade networks.
In many locales, Marwadi immigrants over time (and, usually involving many generations) have blended in with the regional cultures.
The Marwad region includes the central and western parts of Rajasthan. The word Marwad is considered to be derived from Sanskrit word Maruwat, the meaning of maru being 'desert'. Shekhawati region is adjacent to Haryana, the original home of the Agrawals who form the bulk of Marwadi banias.
Many people from Marwadi vaishya/baniya/business caste went to distant states for trading and became successful & famous. Since the vaishya/baniya caste is present everywhere in India, for people in other states, the distinguishing factor of a "Marwadi baniya" person was "Marwadi". Hence, with human tendency to speak short, the term "Marwadi" caught on across India's other states to refer to a businessman from Marwad.
Marwaris comprise the people who originally belonged to Rajasthan, particularly, areas in and around Jodhpur,Bikaner, Pali and Nagaur; and certain other adjoining areas.
Marwaris have close association with tradition & culture of Thar and Hinduism. They usually live together in a Joint Family. They like variety of dishes in meals. They are mostly vegetarian. They are well known for their business acumen.
Marwaris are predominantly Hindu, and there are also a large number of Jains. However, regardless of their affiliation, whether Hindu or Jain, Marwaris mingle with each other socially. In some cases they share matrimonial relations and traditional rituals together. The taboos which existed almost a century ago have largely disappeared while still maintaining the proud Marwari tradition.
Vaishya, or trading and commerce, is the most famous caste among Marwaris. Marwari Baniyas are famous for their trading & business skill.
