The Radhi are divided into two clans, Nageswara and Kashyap. They use surnames such as Behara, Patra, Naik and Roul.
A Radhi man can marry his deceased wife's younger sister. All children inherit property equally. The dead are cremated, but in case of a childhood death burial takes place. Some own land and farm it, and business is a secondary occupation.
They are Hindu and worship such deities as Manasa, Lakshmi, Kamaleshwari, Ganesh and Kali.
High caste communities often have pride in their status, and pride is an enemy of faith.
Perhaps some in this community will discover scripture and resources such as the JESUS Film can be downloaded from the Internet. Pray especially for the youth to make this discovery, and that they will read, listen and view these resources with understanding.
Please pray the Lord will give the gift of conviction of sin to the Radhi. Knowing we need forgiveness is necessary before we will look for a savior.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out his hand-picked ambassadors to this Brahmin group.
Pray for the Lord to call Radhi leaders to himself through dreams and visions.
