Gonrhi of India

Introduction / History
The well-educated ones among them are teachers and government workers, but the majority of them continue as their ancestors have done for centuries: cultivating or fishing. Within their fishing community, they have specialized work based on their subgroup. Some are boatmen, others are fishermen, while another Gonrhi fishes, but they use fishing baskets rather than nets. Many of them belong to the Matsyajibi Unnyan Samity which seeks to improve the welfare of those engaged in the fishing trade.

They usually find a mate through family negotiations. Though monogamy is the custom, they will make an exception if the wife is infertile. Then the husband can take a second wife. They don't permit divorce. Their daughters get an equal share of the family wealth if they don't have brothers. Otherwise, the boys receive it all.

Where are they located?
The Gonrhi people live mainly in India's states of West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh.

What are their beliefs?
The Gonrhi are a Hindu community that worships a number of family and regional deities.

Prayer Points
Pray that they will seek and find the One who called made disciples out of fishermen.
