The Raddi of India live in Karnataka mainly. They speak, read and write in Kannada. They are vegetarians who eat rice and wheat as cereals.
The Raddi prefer marriages between cousins. A dowry is used. Divorce is not allowed but remarriage for widows and widowers is. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are cremated by most of their groups.
The Raddi work in agriculture and most of them own land. Hinduism is their religion.
They believe in education and have their own banks. They have political power in the state of Karnataka.
* Scripture Prayers for the Raddi in India.
* Pray that the Raddi who have power come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet lead them to salvation.
