Introduction / History

The Bathada people of Karnataka are predominantly rural. Though they are Hindus, they are not vegetarian; the Bathada people are noted for enjoying pork.

Monogamy is the rule for Bathada marriages. In the case of adultery or "maladjustment" either party can divorce the other. They marry later than they used to in past generations. Women contribute about as much as the men to the family economical needs. The Bathada people try to keep their families somewhat small. Women often get a tubectomy after having her third child.

The Hindu Bathada people are also noted for listening to the radio.
* Pray that they will tune in to gospel radio programs.
* Pray for radio broadcasts and gospel recordings to be made readily available the Bathada people.
