The Sut of India live in Assam and work mainly in agriculture. They were previously called Boria related to the word widow. They live in the Brahmaputra Valley of India’s Assam state. They speak, read and write in Assamese.
The Boria Assam eat rice and meat, fish and eggs.
The bereaved and divorced can marry again. They have rituals for births and marriages. On the death of the father, property goes in same amounts to the sons. They cremate their dead like most Hindu communities.
Bihu is their main festival.
The Boria Assam people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins.
Almost all Hindus participate in yearly celebrations like Holi, the festival of colors and the start of spring / Diwali, the festival of lights / Navratri, the celebration of autumn / and Rama Navami, Rama’s birthday.
They need better drinking water.
Pray that the Boria Assam have enough pure drinking water.
Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to him.
Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Boria Assam people to salvation, disciple them, and thrust them out to others.
