What does Basically mean?
I wish to refer the statement in the first paragraph
"Basically they are from Rajasthan and Gujarat".
The word "basically" is often used in coloquil English in either a redundant, ambiguous or unclear manner. We should avoid localised coloquil usage in documents meant for precise comprehension unless we wish to describe that coloquilism.
Does "basically" here mean, generally, historically, in most cases, originally, currently or actually? Could someone who knows this subject replace "basically" so that we know if one or more of the following cases are true:
Historically, they were from Rajasthan and Gujarat;
Generally, they are from Rajasthan and Gujarat;
In most cases, they are from Rajasthan and Gujarat;
Originally, they were from Rajasthan and Gujarat;
Actually, they are from Rajasthan and Gujarat; or
Currently, they are from Rajasthan and Gujarat;
This clarification is needed because Banjara is found not only in India but also in Europe and Russia as part of the gypsies. Therefore, a clarification is needed if non-Indian Banjara are/were ?basically? from Rajasthan and Gujarat.
The banjara are comercial man who had expanded their business in all over india. But in between british empier the whole system collapsed because of industrial developments.

Merge Vanjari (caste) to Banjara
- Support: They are the same caste according to this Bombay High Court judgement: http://indiankanoon.org/doc/1839070/
- From the judgement: "The authoritative works referred to above show that Banjara, Banjari and Vanjari are inter-changeable terms and that people of these communities are also known as Lamanis, Lambadis, etc. In the context of these authorities must be read the G.Rs dated 18th February, 1985 and 18th August, 1977. By the former, the following were treated as synonyms of Banjara: Lambada/ Lambera, Laman Banjaras, Laman/Lamani, Shingawala Banjarais and Shingawala Vanjaris. By the latter, Banjari was treated as a synonym of Banjara and, at the same time, the synonyms shingawala Banjaris and Shingawala Vanjaris were deleted. It is difficult to see how, in this background, it can be contended on behalf of the State Government that the terms Banjara and Vanjari are not synonymous.
- ...a representation is made and a final decision taken as aforesaid, Banjara and Vanjari shall be treated as synonyms of each other and the confidential circular dated 5th March, 1986 shall not be acted upon." -Mohanbhan (talk) 13:35, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
