मुंडा or मुंढा


muṇḍā or muṇḍhā m The attendant upon a हिजडा or hermaphrodite, when he goes his beggingrounds. As the Hindús may not suffer the हिजडा to enter their houses, nor may even look upon his face, this मुंडा, being a man of caste, demands and receives alms on the हिजडा's account. Pr. हिजड्याची जोड मुंड्यानें खावी. Called also खरखर- मुंडा & मामरमुंडा.
