  1. These Roma & Cinti people were amazing artists and artisans taken out of India in 10th century in the stregth of 10 millions roughly by Turks. Later they were refused to go back and sent towards Europe. No country accepted them. They lived like nomads and lost all cultural heritage, easteem values and talents over generations.
    Some famous examples from them are Charlin Chaplin and you might have heard of Picasso. They changed European arts for good.

  2. I don't see anything inherently wrong here. They are doing this to make sure family and tradition live on. Ita truly beautiful and makes sense why it's pretty much like this in most parts of the world that isn't the perverted WEST
