Gandhila of India

Introduction / History
They claim to have Rajput status, but actually they are scheduled castes, meaning that they have low status. Gandhila women work mainly at home, but they have been known to help their husbands with their work. Traditionally they were broom makers, paper toy-makers, and donkey traders, though today most work as agricultural laborers.

This is a community that is moving into the modern world in many ways. They take advantage of modern conveniences like medical care, immunizations, mass media, and electricity. Almost all of these Hindus speak Punjabi, a major language that has many Christian resources including a New Testament, the JESUS Film, and gospel recordings.

Where are they located?
The 6,000 Gandhila people live mostly in India's Punjab and Haryana states.

What are their beliefs?
They are a Hindu people who celebrate Hindu festivals, hold Hindu weddings, and worship Hindu gods. On the eve of the Hindu Diwali festival, the Gandhila people worship their ancestors.

Prayer Points
Pray that evangelistic materials will become widely available to them, and they will be open to embracing Christ as their only lord.
