Introduction / History

The Bagban of India grow and sell vegetables. The word Bagban means one who looks after the garden. They have councils who judge in general matters.

In Uttar Pradesh the Bagban speak Urdu and Hindi and write in Perso Arabic among each other. They are not vegetarians and do not drink alcohol. They are endogamous, which means they prefer to marry within the group. They have adult marriages through discussion and cousins often marry. Sons get a larger amount of property than the daughters on the death of the father and the oldest son becomes in charge of the home. Marriage is at the home of the bride. The dead are buried. They own land and in addition to selling vegetables, some work in confectionery and some for the government. They value education.

In Karnataka the Bagban speak Urdu and write in Perso Arabic. They eat wheat and rice. They are monogamous. Daughters get half of the property. Education is for boys and girls. They use modern medicines. They sell vegetables and fruit mainly and there are some teachers, doctors and engineers among them.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Bagban councils will come to Jesus Christ and help lead the Bagban community to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
