Introduction / History

The Kamboh occupy a high place in Indian society. The Kamboj of Haryana speak Haryanvi and Hindi. They read and write in Devanagari. In Uttar Pradesh the Kamboj speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are landowners and many work on the land, in business or for the government. They are reasonably well educated and use modern medicines. Divorce is allowed within the first two years of marriage. The divorced and bereaved can marry again depending on their age. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming the new head of the household. They have a caste council to speak out for their interests.


What Are Their Beliefs?

You can say that being divided between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs, the Kamboh are one of India's most religiously diverse people groups, as well as one of her most competent. Yet as a people, they have not found it in their hearts to submit to the One who yearns to have them become part of His Kingdom. They have remained part of several religions, but few if any have given Jesus a chance to change their lives.


What Are Their Needs?

They need the abundant life that only Jesus Christ can offer the nations.
