Introduction / History

The Baiti people must have strong, nimble fingers given the work that most of them do. Many roll cigarettes or do mat or basket weaving, though there are others who earn their living by farming. They are part of the Sudra, or servant rung of Hinduism's caste system. That means that they are among the lowest of the four major caste clusters. Almost all of them are part of the Hindu religion, so they cremate their dead. Though the majority of them live in India's West Bengal state, some live further west where they speak Hindi rather than Bengali.

Pray that God will raise up many from the Baiti people to worship Christ alone.
