Nai Mathuria of India

Introduction / History
The Nai live in many states in India. They are barbers but in states such as Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Assam they do other work too. Some work in agriculture. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat, maize and rice. Many are poor.

The Nai are mostly monogamous. The divorced and bereaved can marry again except in Punjab where only widowers can marry again. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Nai are Hindus by religion and have festivals. They have a caste council to look after them. Though their education has improved there is room for more improvement especially for girls, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They use traditional and modern medicines.

Prayer Points
* Pray that council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
* Pray that the poor are helped.
