Introduction / History

The Sinduria are a scheduled caste who live in Orissa. They speak, read and write in Oriya. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

The Sindura are landless. They make and sell vermilion and use markets. Some do vaccinations. Many of them are now laborers. The women help with getting the vermilion ready as well as with other things. Hinduism is their religion. They have festivals.

They are only partly educated, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. The name Sinduria comes from the word sindoor meaning red vermilion.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Bania Sinduria in India.

* Pray that Indian Christians lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings lead them to salvation.
