The condition of the village is really poor. People are illiterate and have no living sense. The most important thing is people are mostly involve in domestic politics, they always find issues or try to create it which result in the demolition of individuals and families. They always to led down the other, if someone is improving financially, these people don't waste even a single chance to spoil his/her life. Gujjar is basically a cast. This cast is consider very morel but due to the monopoly of raja's in this area has spoiled Gujjar's and their families to backward. Rajas has played very bad role for this society. Even most of their families are involve in killing and robberies. But they get release from the police by offer bribe. It is also a point that there isn't such law implementation. Raja's always try to pull back one who want to change the life of these people to keep their hold on the society.http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=404421288
