Introduction / History
The Raddi of India live in Karnataka mainly. They speak, read and write in Kannada. They are vegetarians who eat rice and wheat as cereals.

The Raddi prefer marriages between cousins. A dowry is used. Divorce is not allowed but remarriage for widows and widowers is. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are cremated by most of their groups.

They believe in education and have their own banks. They have political power in the state of Karnataka.
