Kamboh (Hindu traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Kamboj or Kamboh of India are not vegetarians and eat wheat as a cereal. They work in agriculture. Many are landowners. They have caste councils to look after them. The Muslims among them live in the Punjab. The Kamboj who live in the Punjab speak Punjabi.

In Haryana they speak Haryanvi and read and write in Devanagari. They have adult marriages. The bereaved can marry again depending on their age. On the death of the father, property goes to the sons with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals among them and the dead are cremated. Many are in business and government service. They are Hindus by religion and use family planning.

In Uttar Pradesh, they speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Divorce is allowed provided it is during the first two years of marriage.

In Chandigarh they speak Hindi and Punjabi and read and write in Devanagari.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the caste councils will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Kamboj to Him.
* Pray that God will give the Kamboj dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
