Introduction / History

The Kadia of Gujarat in India are a people group of Hindus and Muslims. They speak, read and write in Gujarati. Kadia means masonry.

The Muslims are Sunni and live in Dabhoji and Vadodara city. They are not vegetarians and they eat wheat as a cereal. Cousin marriages are generally not allowed. They are monogamous and divorce is allowed. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son in charge of the home. They have birth and marriage rituals. Most of them do masonry work and agriculture. They have caste councils to look after them. They use modern medicines and family planning.

The Hindus have a lifestyle similar to the Muslims in many ways, differing of course in religion. They worship Hindu style and worship ancestors. They do not like to use family planning.
