JAGARNATHPUR

These Oriya Brahmin families are still found in the interior of the Ranchi district and even in very inaccessible villages. Hinduisation of the Mundas and other aboriginals of Ranchi district have been much accelerated by the induction of the Brahmin priestly families.

It is wrong to think that the infiltration of Hinduism has been slow but steady in Ranchi district, as held by some anthropologists.

Hinduism has been there at least from the beginning of the Christian era and the Nagavanshi Chotanagpur Maharajas gave liberal support to the spread of Hinduism in this aboriginal country. It is also a fact that, with the bettering of the economic status, the families who were on the borderline became more Hinduised. The eclecticism of Hinduism attracted the aboriginals. The Hindu festivals, like Durga Puja etc., have always been freely participated in by the aboriginals.
