Halwai Maira of India

Introduction / History
The Mayara live in West Bengal. Hinduism is their religion. They speak, read and write in Bengali. They are not vegetarians who eat rice and wheat too. They are confectioners by tradition.

The Mayara are monogamous. They have adult marriages by discussion. Widowers can marry again but not widows. There are birth, marriage and death rituals. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, the oldest son then becomes in charge of the home.

Most of the Mayara have land. Many now work in business and services. Both boys and girls are educated. They make use of modern health methods.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Mayara to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to salvation.
