  1. Odh

    Odh are a Rajput community and a tribe with origins in Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan and Rajasthan in India. The tribe has a distinct and unique history dating back thousands of years. They are considered to be of Rajput origin. However, not much is documented about this tribe. One of the earliest reference to Odhs is found in the 18th century poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, who has praised Ods for their hard work and simplicity. History DISTRIBUTION The Ods are a large community spread over a large region with concentrations in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana in India and in Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan. The Oads have been nomads for centuries since Mughals ruled South Asia, and were known in the South Asia as indigenous civil engineers, constructors of ponds, walls, structures, canals and embankments. In Punjab, they are most numerous in Lahore, and along the lower Indus and Chenab, especially around the city of Multan.[4] Language Those in Sindh, Haryana, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan speak their own language called Oadki, which resembles Marathi and Gujarati with borrowings from Marwari and Punjabi.
