The Armourers of the Rajputs, The Gadi Lohars, Whoes traditional home was Chittor, are today a wandering tribe, once they produced top quality weapons and armour for their masters. After the fall of Chittor to Akbar in 1567, they swore never to return to the citadel till it was freed. In the early 1950's Nehru personally led them back to a free Chittor, but their nomadic habits were too deeply ingrained in them. Printed Pages: 120.
