Silpi of India

Introduction / History
The Viswakarma live in the south of Andhra Pradesh and migrated from Tamil Nadu. They speak, read and write in Tamil and Telugu. Hinduism is their religion. They are vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

The Viswakarma have cousin marriages. Widows and divorced women cannot marry again. The dead are buried.

The Viswakarma continue with their traditional work of being sculptors and carving idols. They may have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

Some of the Viswakarma live in Karnataka.

Prayer Points
* Pray that they do not continue to make idols.
* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
