Introduction / History

The Megh (or Meghwal) are a scheduled caste whose primary occupation is farming.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Nowadays, the caste prejudice against them has died down to a large extent except in some remote areas. They have achieved moderate progress in education and their literacy rate has been improving.

What Are Their Beliefs?

They worship Ram Devji and Bankar Mataji as the chief god and goddess of the community.

What Are Their Needs?

The Hindu Megh people need to put their hope in the King of kings, realizing that he is the one who gives them worth and dignity.

Prayer Points

Pray the Lord will give Megh families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ.

Pray for an improvement in living conditions for this low caste community, for educational opportunities for the children, and employment opportunities for the adults.

The New Testament, JESUS Film, and other tools are available. Pray for workers to take the gospel message to this community.
