Malis is a subcategory of Hindus who traditionally took the responsibility of taking care of private and public gardens. Especially they used to take care of flower gardens for kings and rulers. This gave them a proud name of "Phul Mali" which actually means one who takes care of flowers. Malis had good social status throughout the history. Today they are living in the states of North India and East India. They are found in smaller numbers in other parts of India. There are many subcategories in Malis. These subcategories may have slight differences in the language they speak, the culture they follow and their behavior. But in general, people from this community are good in appreciating art, hard working and being loyal to those they work for. Today, Malis work on various fields, some of them starting their own businesses. They work together to keep their cultural values in the young generation. This is a great habit followed by everyone from this community when interacting with their children. Malis matrimony process will start when a boy or a girl is found to be of right age for marriage. Their parents will start talking about this in their community, looking for a suitable match for them. These days this is done through websites where profiles can be uploaded. Interested parents search and find these profiles and contact them for further match. Typically these families meet, discuss and then the boy and girl meet and discuss their interests before deciding on the marriage. If everyone agrees that this boy and this girl make a good pair, both families will start making preparations for the marriage.
