Introduction / History

The Khatri Somvanshiya of Maharashtra speak Marathi and read and write in Devanagari except for those who come from Gujarat, who speak in Gujarati. They are not vegetarians.

The Somvanshiya are monogamous. The divorced and widowers can marry again. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. Sons inherit the property on the death of the father. They have large families.

Weaving cotton and silk is their main work. Some are in business. They are reasonably well educated. Hinduism is their religion.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Khatri Somvanshiya to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings and the internet will lead them to salvation.
