Chhimba (Hindu traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Chhimba people live mainly in India's northern state of Himachal Pradesh. Though there are Muslims and Hindus among them, most are Hindu. They speak the regional dialect of Western Pahari Hindi, and standard Hindi as a trade language.

What are their lives like?
Families arrange marriages, and it's common for Chhimba families to exchange sisters in marriage. Boys get married at about 20 years of age, and girls at 16. Women are very much involved with washing clothes, the trade of this people group that is closely related to the better-known Dhobis. Recently some have opened dry cleaning and dyeing shops in towns. Development programs have helped the Chhimba people, specifically in the area of literacy.

Prayer Points
* Pray that soon Chhimba people will sing songs of worship to their true King as they go about their work as cleaners.
* Pray that they will share Christ with their customers, and thus share the spiritual wealth with others in this highly resistant part of India.
