Bazigar (Hindu traditions) in India

The Bazigar are a Hindu people who live in south and northwest India. Their name Bazigar means "acrobat." They are best known for performing music and dancing at Hindu festivals and major family events. Some of the Bazigar are also tailors, barbers and agricultural workers. The Bazigar have their own dialect of Telugu and speak Hindi and Punjabi with outsiders. They are a scheduled caste, which means they are eligible for special preference in public jobs and university admissions.

Outreach Ideas

Hindu background believers in south India can share the blessings of knowing Christ with the Bazigar.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray that Bazigar elders will seek and find Jesus and lead their communities to know Him. * Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Bazigar people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. * Pray for a movement of Bazigar households to study the Bible and accept the blessings of Christ.

Scripture Focus

"For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?" 2 Corinthians 2:15-16
