Introduction / History

The Parkavakulam or Udayar of India live in Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. They speak, read and write in Tamil. They are not vegetarians and eat rice.

Agriculture is their main work. Cousin marriages take place. Divorce is not allowed. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property and the oldest son becomes in charge of the home. They use modern and traditional medicines. They are Hindus and have a caste association to look after them.

In Kerala, the Udayar are familiar with the Malayalam language too. Divorce is allowed. They do cultivation work. Family planning is used by them and they are educated to secondary schooling.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the caste association leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
