The article is inaccurate[edit]

The word "Dubla" does not derive from Hindi or Marathi. It is a Gujarati word and simply a name given to a caste. The Gujarati words for thin or weak are different. Just because the word exists in other languages does not make them have the same meaning. For example, the word "Virar" is found in both Hindi/Marathi (where it is the name of a place in Mumbai, Maharashtra) as well as in Spanish (where is means "to turn around"). So does that make the place "Virar" mean "turn around"? See below links:
