MA PAUDI

In pursuance of this policy, known as the Subsidiary Alliance, the British approached the Maharaja of Singhbhum in 1820 for a treaty. This was done despite the fact that the influence of the Porahat Raj had waned very considerably and the kingdom had shrunk from 14,000 villages to a bare 500.

Lord Wellesley had realized that the Ruler of Seraikella counted for much more than the Ruler of Singhbhum and he had asked Seraikella not to allow any passage of Raghuji Bhonsle's troops through his territory and the British had also received active assistance from the Raja of Seraikella during the third Mahratta War. But there was now a shift and a new-found desire to patronize Singhbhum or the Maharaja of Porahat.

The Ruler of Porahat promptly responded to the overtures of the British and one of the terms was that the image of Paudi Devi, which was in the possession of the Raja of Seraikella, should be restored. On the 8th of March, 1923, Col. Gilbert, with the Ramgarh Battalion and accompanied by Raja Ghanashyam Singh of Porahat, marched oil and surrounded the palace of Seraikella to bring back the image of Sri Paudi Devi.
