Raigar of India

Introduction / History
The Raigar are a Scheduled Caste in India. They get their name from their work in leather which is their traditional work.

In Rajasthan, they speak Marwari. They are not vegetarians and believe in monogamy. Marrying again is accepted. Sons inherit the property on the death of the father with the oldest son in charge of the home. They do leather work. They have birth, marriage and death rituals. Hinduism is their religion.

In Delhi the Raigar speak Marwari among themselves and Hindi with others. Wheat is their main cereal. Many of them now do private and government work or are in business.

In the Punjab the Raigar as well as Marwari speak Punjabi. They are landless. They use education, family planning and modern medicines.

Prayer Points
