Gokha (Hindu traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Gokha are a scheduled caste who live in Orissa in India. They live in Balasore and other districts of that state. The word Gokha means cow eater. They speak Oriya mainly but some speak Hindi. They are not vegetarians and eat mutton, fish and eggs with rice as a cereal.

The Gokha do fishing mainly. The women sell the fish. Women are also involved in religious and social activities. Their literacy level though improved is low and so the gospel may need to be given in oral form too. They are poor and it is difficult for them to afford to send their children to school for further education.

The Gokha have sub-groups and there is marriage between some of these groups. They use traditional and modern medicines and family planning. Hinduism is their religion.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Gokha in their poverty come to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that their economic situation may improve.
* Pray that gospel recordings will bring them to salvation.
