Introduction / History

The Patra Gurika live in Andhra Pradesh in India. They speak, read and write in Telugu. They are not vegetarians but do not eat beef.

There are three divisions among them. Widows cannot marry again but widowers can. Sons inherit the property on the death of the father. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are buried.

Most of the Patra Gurika work as agricultural laborers. Hinduism is their religion. Their literacy level is improving but the gospel may need to be given in oral form too.
They use modern medicines and family planning.
