Introduction / History

The Hindu Rangrez live in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka in India. They speak Marathi and are called Rangarajulu among the locals.

They were classed as a family of rulers. They are involved in the clothing industry by tradition and now also in other industries. Printing patterns on clothing is something they began to do later.

Bhavsar is another name for Rangrez. They have professionals in work such as medicine and computer technology. They are Hindus and marriages are often arranged by families and others. Elected caste councils settle disagreements for them including family disputes.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the caste council elders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel materials will bring them to salvation.
