The Tzigania Experience

 GABOR - Roma Brahmin

The traditional Roma known as "Gabor" - the Roma aristocrat - are a tightly united community
 bounded  by  community laws - sacred traditions - and a history tracing back to medieval bands
known as the "King's Gyspies".
They are revered by all other Roms as
the bluebloods, the royalist and nobleman of the Roma nation.
They are pure, following strict tradition of arranged marriages and endogamy

  They preserve their identity with discriminating social barriers keeping outsiders - outside their protective domain and from getting too close and spreadimg infective influences of change. The Gabor nation have their own laws, their own culture, their own sense of religion that they stringently protect.

  The heavy criticized arranged marriages stands as the pillar to their survival.

  Romani is the language of the Gabor – and the strict laws of Rromanipen (Roma religion) acts as their guides through life.   Rromipen defines the taboos, rituals, dress codes, conduct, and belief system that links Roma to their distant Hindu-Indian origins. 

   They are a severely proud people - true believers of their old fashion ways and polarize themselves 
by identifying all non-Roma by the single noun “gazjo” - similar to the Jewish term "goy" identifying all gentiles - and other cultural similarities paralleling the Jewish experience...

Outsiders are generally not welcome inside their protected domain making this experience of visiting and getting to know this family Gabor as especially unique and rewarding.
