Rajwar of India

Introduction / History
The Rajwar are Hindus who live in India. Many have a low literacy level so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

The Rajwar in Madhya Pradesh speak in Chhattisgarhi and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat and rice as cereals. They are monogamous and marriage is through discussion. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. Sons inherit the same, regards property on the death of the father. There are birth and marriage rituals. Dead adults are cremated and dead children are buried. They work in agriculture and have caste councils to judge in disputes and to look after them in social matters.

In West Bengal they speak Magahi and Bengali and read and write Bengali. In Bihar they speak Magahi and Hindi and read and write Devanagari and many of them are cultivators.

In Orissa, the Rajwar speak, read and write Oriya.

Prayer Points
