Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Kunbi Lonari are a caste of Maharashtra. Their name comes from a lake called Lani. They originally came from Uttar Pradesh. They speak Marathi and read and write in Devanagari. The men among them are not vegetarians but women are. Jowar and rice are eaten by them as cereals.

They are endogamous (they prefer to marry within the caste) and have cousin marriages but do not marry others with the same surname. The divorced and bereaved can only marry those in a similar position to themselves. Sons inherit the property and the dead are usually cremated.

Most of the Kunbi Lonari own land and work in cultivation. They sell vegetables and other food at the market. Some work for the government. Hinduism is their religion. They use family planning.

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