Sudha in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Suda live in Orissa and speak, read and write in Oriya. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

The Suda like cousin marriages. The bereaved and divorced can marry again. The dead are buried or cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the the oldest son having the most and becoming in charge of the home.

The Suda work mostly as cultivators. They are landowners. Hinduism is their religion and they have festivals. They have councils to look after them. They believe in education and use traditional and modern medicines. Floor painting and basketry are crafts that they do.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Indian Christians who like crafts befriend them and lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
