The Bathada people live in Karnataka.
The Bathada people are predominantly rural.
Monogamy is the rule for Bathada marriages. In the case of adultery or "maladjustment" either party can divorce the other. They marry later than they used to in past generations. Women contribute about as much as men to the family economical needs. The Bathada people try to keep their families small. Women often get a tubectomy after having her third child.
Though they are Hindus, they are not vegetarian; the Bathada people are noted for enjoying pork.
They are noted for listening to the radio. They need gospel oriented radio in the Kannada language.
Pray that they will tune in to gospel radio programs.
Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead the Bathada people into Christ's kingdom.
Pray for Holy Spirit directed workers to go to them.
