Brahmin Chitpavan of India

Introduction / History
The Chitpavan Brahmin of India live in Konkan on the coast of western India. They also live in Maharashtra and other places. They are mainly Hindus.

Many years ago the Chitpavan were looked on as being inferior to other Brahmins. Then they increased in power and took power from the Deshastha Brahmins and there has been much rivalry between the two. When the Chitpavan went into the military it gave them a higher status.

The Chitpavan Brahmins celebrate Hindu festivals and they are priests. Some work in agriculture while some are self-employed and others do office work.

They speak mainly Marathi but some speak Konkani and Kannada too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that pride will not get in the way of the Brahmins giving themselves to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will bring the Chitpavan Brahmin to salvation too.
