With the advent of plastic combs, a familiar voice in the streets of villages and town has disappeared which shouted for selling ‘Kangashiyu’.
        The Kangashi was comb, which most people used. A lady with different kind of combs in a basket on her head dressed in dark cloth, a large sized embroidered kapadi and petticoat decorated with small round mirrors would look like a Marwadi lady. The male used to put on a string of stones in the neck, free-style dhoti, shirts, old coat and a turban. They keep whiskers. Their speech would not miss the Marwadi accent.
        Kangashiya were more or less nomadic people. They would put up in the outskirts of a village erecting a temporary shelter.
        They prepared kangashi or a comb from black wood. One man could make about 50 combs in a day. They were expert in that skill.
        Kangashiya are known for their skill of acrobatics like Nat-Bajaniya. They can jump in the air thrice or four times without touching the land. A kangashiya can lift the cot with its one foot on his tooth. They used to entertain the village masses with many such skills. Kangashiya have developed the art of embroidery, woodcarving and carpentry.
