Facts About India
Currently India’s population is more than 1.2 billion and growing.
- A Little less that 2% of them are Christians, including Catholics.
- Very limited Christian material is available in North Indian languages. English books from the West have very limited use for common Indians.
If India can be analysed from the point of view of regions then taking the northern and the southern equal size region:
Out of 10 Christians in India -
- Only 1 resides in North Zone while
- 9 reside in South Zone.
This explains our focus on Resources for North Zone of India, where the need is much greater.
During Kumbh mela (the largest Hindu religious gathering by the Ganges river) in Haridwar, the Kumbh coordination committee had selected The “Jawab” hindi book (written by Shishye Thompson) to be their main evangelical tool. Shishyashram supplied them with 300,000 books against a request of one million.
Every denomination in India is happily and willingly using the resources of these books, tapes and tracts. There are organizations that produce hundreds of thousands of these books at their own expenses.
Shishye Thompson has not kept any copyrights for these resources. As Christ gave up all His rights and gave Himself to us. So also these resources are to be used freely by one and all.
