Introduction / History
The Korama are a scheduled caste in Karnataka in India. They live in Bangalore and other places in that state. The name Korama is related to fortune telling.

They speak Tamil and Kannada. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal. Cross-cousin marriages take place among them and they are endogamous (meaning they prefer marriages to take place within their group. The Korama do fortune telling, work with bamboo, weave mats, perform tattooing and also laboring. Hinduism is their religion.

Boys are educated and girls to a lesser degree. The literacy level however is on the low side so the gospel may need to be given in oral form too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Indian Christians will help lead the Korama to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
