Gabits are Aarmari Marathas which belongs to the ancient roots of Maratha. They originally belong to Konkan and basically found in Goa and Sindhudurg. Their traditional job is to work in the Aarmar or navy of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. In the coastal parts of Karnataka also, they are found. They were basically involved in ship works or fishing activity. But the modern civilization has brought a great change to this community. They are found in different jobs. They work in government and private sector jobs. They also sell fishes in Goa. They are industrious and believe in their tradition. They follow their traditional work and love to follow their traditional ceremonies as well. They are Hindus and live in joint families. All their rituals are observed according to Hindu norms. They follow the matrimonial tradition of their fishing community and worship the Hindu deities. The Gabit bride wears their traditional saree with their traditional ornaments which distinguish them from other Hindu communities. They celebrate their wedding ceremony with folksongs and dances. Their matrimonial celebrations include all pomp and joy. They are quite joyful in nature and love to celebrate every festival with dancing and singing. Dhalo is a great festival of Gabits where they sing the love songs of Radha and Krishna, the Hindu deities. They dance in this festival too. Some of their cultures match with other fishing communities of Goa. Bhandaries and Kharvi communities have certain similarities with Gabit community. But they are a different caste and they have their unique ways of celebration.
