Kurubas or Dhangars or Hatkars or Telwar Lingayaths are a specific kind of families who originally were taking care of sheep and farms. But slowly, they started engaging in other agricultural activities and other fields as well. Today members from this family are in all fields, some working for themselves, some working for major industries and employers. They are present in certain states of India (Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu) in large numbers. In all other states they may be present in smaller numbers. These Kurubas are very proud about their heritage. They show care and affection to anything that they are taking care, be it a sheep or their own land. They ensure maximum care is given and it helps them make a living. Hence, they bring the same attitude in anything they do. It helps them grow from one stage to another keeping their roots on. There were some rulers too in Kurubas. For example, Virupaksha Raya, Sangolli Rayanna are some of the popular examples for Kuruba rulers. They ruled their citizens with kind and affection and got the praise of everyone, and they are being remembered even today. Kurubas follow a standard process when it comes to matrimony. They prepare the profiles of the boys and girls and share them in a public forum. Now it can be a website. There they upload these information which is viewed by other parents who are looking for a suitable match. Once a good match is identified, the next level of talks begin between parents in both families which results in the marriage of that boy and girl.
