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.
