Devipujak Vaghri (Hindu traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Vaghri of India in Delhi speak Gujarati and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and they eat wheat and rice.

The Vaghri in Delhi do adult marriages. They permit remarriage. Property goes to the sons on the death of the father and the oldest son becomes in charge of the home. There are marriage and birth rituals. The dead are cremated. They barter steel items and plastic buckets for old clothes which they mend and sell. Children work. The council has been replaced by a registered society that looks after them. They are Hindus by religion.

In Maharashtra, the Vaghri are allowed to divorce. They have caste councils to look after them. The education level among them is poor so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the leaders of the societies and councils that look after them will give their lives to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Vaghri to Him too.
* Pray that gospel recordings will bring the Vaghri to salvation.
