The harsh, barren landscape of the Thar is frequently cited as the primary factor behind Marwaris’ migration from Rajasthan. Away from home, initial lack of resources motivated them to work assiduously while adopting a frugal way of life, and these have long been attributed as reasons for their power and influence in society and industry today.
