Introduction / History

The Singhrolia are one of the greater Gond tribes. They have scheduled tribe status. The Singhrolia live in Chhattisgarh and speak Chhattisgarhi.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Agriculture is their main work as well as agricultural laboring. Women help with agriculture except with plowing. They have a caste council to look after their needs. They prefer cousin marriages. Even though they are Hindus, they bury their dead rather than cremate them. The Singhrolia have their boys educated to secondary level and their girls to primary level. They use both modern and traditional medicines.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Singhrolia 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.


What Are Their Needs?

The Singhrolia Gonds need to experience the abundant life that only Jesus Christ offers the nations.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Gond Singhrolia in India.

* Pray for intercessors and workers. * Pray for openness to the claims of Christ. * Pray that gospel materials and the internet will provide them with plenty of essential gospel materials.
