Introduction / History

The Gujarati Darzi migrated from Gujarat to Madhya Pradesh. Some Darzi are in other Indian states. There are a mixture of Muslims and Hindus among them. The Gujarati Darzi speak Gujarati and Hindi and they read and write in Gujarati and Devanagari. They are vegetarians and they eat wheat and rice as cereals.

The Darzi are endogamous. Divorce and remarriage is allowed as is polygamy. With inheritance, property is shared among the sons with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They have marriage and birth ceremonies. Young infants and babies are buried while adults are cremated. There is a set pollution period.

The Gujarati Darzi are landless. They are tailors by tradition and many work as tailors now. Some are business people. There is a council that looks after local matters.

The word Darzi means tailor. Some Darzi work in the textile industry and in the rural regions some are farmers.

Though the Darzi believe in education, girls do not get educated. They use modern medicines and family planning.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God Gives the Darzi dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Darzi council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others among them to Salvation too.
