Introduction / History

In Karnataka the Komarpaik speak, read and write in Kannada. They are not vegetarians. Marriage is by discussion. The bereaved and divorcees can marry again. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They are mostly landless and laboring and cultivation and government service are some of their occupations. They believe in education and use traditional and modern medicines as well as family planning. Hinduism is their religion.

In Goa they migrated from Karnataka. They speak in Konkani and read and write in Devanagari. They work in horticulture.
