The Garodi are an endogamous group with four exogamous sub-divisions. These sub-divisions are the Paroh, Pansitea, Bastasi and Bobad. Marriage within the sub-divisions is strictly forbidden. They are a landless community, who specialise in juggling and snake charming. The Garodi are Sunni Muslim, but incorporate many folk customs. They have set up a caste association, the Garodi Samaj, which acts as a community welfare organization.
