Kapali of India

Introduction / History
The name Kapali means fortunate. Many of the Kapali migrated to India from East Bengal which is now Bangladesh. The Kapali speak, read and write in Bengali. Some of them can speak Hindi. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

Most of the Kapali of India live in West Bengal. They are exogamous, meaning they seek to marry outside their clan or group. Divorce is not allowed. Marrying again is sometimes allowed. When the father dies, sons inherit the property. There are marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. They are landowners. Agriculture is the main work. Some do office work. Hinduism is their religion. They use government benefit plans.

In Tripura the Kapali men are good at craft work and the women do embroidery.

In Bihar the Kapali are landless. Many are now working in shops, as teachers and in government work.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God gives the Kapali dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
* Pray that Indian Christian organizations will help lead them to Jesus Christ.
