Rom Word for ‘Possess’ (excerpt from “The Gypsy’s Song”)

“We Rom did not even have a word in our language for ‘possess’, while for the
gadje
, it is probably the most significant and the most defining word in their
language. Surely, it is only by possessions that the worth of an individual
gadjo c
an ever be determined.

The gadje believe everything must be owned by someone; contrarily, the
Rom believe nothing is or can ever be owned, and in nature, everything
exists for the pleasure and delight of all humankind.”
