"Gadaria, G?dri: The occupational shepherd caste of northern India. The name is derived from the Hindi g?dar and the Sanskrit gandh?ra, a sheep, the Sanskrit name being taken from the country of Gandh?ra or Kandah?r, from which sheep were first brought. The three main shepherd castes all have functional names, that of the Dhangars or Mar?tha shepherds being derived from dhan, small stock, while the Kuramw?rs or Telugu shepherds take their name like the Gadarias from kuruba, a sheep. These three castes are of similar nature and status, and differ only in language and local customs. In 1911 the Gadarias numbered 41,000 persons.
