Introduction / History

The Gharami people are spread out all over northern India. They use some common Indian surnames like Singh, Prasad, and Kumar. Both men and women are prone to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.

They have a number of gotras, or clan-based communities. They always marry outside their lineage. Fortunately, they now marry as adults rather than as children as they had in the past. Their marriages are monogamous, but a man can take more than one wife if there is an infertility problem.

The Gharamis are related to the huge Chamar peoples; both groups do leather work. Traditionally they have been repairers of leather shoes, but today's generation often works in other occupations like owning petty businesses, doing industrial work, or working for the government. They have managed to get more education in recent years than they had in the past.


What Are Their Beliefs?

These 6,900 Hindus worship the gambit of Hindu gods, and they have a special category of Brahmins to attend to their spiritual needs such as performing the last rites.


Prayer Points

These Hindus need Christ, not a pantheon of Hindu gods. Pray that they will find their true Savior and forsake all others.
