Introduction / History

The Bagheti people fish off the coast of Orissa, one of India's eastern states, though some are wage laborers. Like many people groups in the Hindu world, the Bagheti place themselves higher on the caste order than others. They consider themselves to be Sudras, the fourth of four major caste groups, while others would call them Dalits, or out-castes.

The Bagheti people bury their dead, but those with more wealth prefer the more expensive Hindu custom of cremation. Though they would like to improve their standard of living through higher education and better medical care, seldom have the opportunity to rise above poverty.


Prayer Points

* Since many good Christian resources are available in Oriya, a language understood by the Bagheti people, pray that these resources will find their way into the hearts of extended families.
