The Gowari are traditionally cattle herdsmen in Maharashtra (and are neither milk seller nor cow owner).
There was a stampede during a protest in Nagpur on 23 November 1994 in which 114 people from the Gowari community were killed and more than 500 were injured.
A monument, the Gowari Shaheed Smarak, has been built in Nagpur near Zero Milestone, (the geographical centre of India) to commemorate those who died in this tragedy. Also the nearby flyover (Sitabuldi area, Nagpur) has been named Adivasi Gowari Shaheed flyover.
