On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. Women help with agriculture. They work in cultivation. Hinduism and traditional religion are their beliefs. They worship ancestors.
The Korku in Maharashtra work in agriculture and collect forest produce for a living. Hinduism is their religion.
