Introduction / History

The Bansphor Hindus are a Scheduled Caste who live in Uttarh Pradesh in India. They are also called Banbasi. The languages spoken by them are Hindi, Kari Boli and Awadhi. The Bansphor name comes partly from the word Bans meaning bamboo. By tradition they make bamboo products for use in the home.

The Bansphor are endogamous and they do not marry the Bansphor Muslims. They live in villages that are multi caste ones but have their own homes. There are caste councils among them called Panchayats who deal with local matters and settle disagreements. Hanuman is their Hindu god.

The Bansphor sell the bamboo furniture they make at markets. Some of the Bansphor do agricultural work while others have moved to other parts of India to do general labor. In general they are not very well off financially. The Bansphor are supposed to be from the Dom people group. Many live in Farrukhabad and in Awadh.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Bansphor dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that their financial situation will improve.
