BILASPUR

There is no sex-slant. Kathas are often held and legends of Raja Harish Chandra, Prahlad etc. are recited. There are also attempts to stage the stories. Ramlila parties are much patronized. Ramayana, Mahabharat and Shreemad Bhagwat are often read out to the devotees.

The princely State used to appoint its own Kathakars and preachers. The princely State also used to spend some money in maintaining the temples.Free endowments of lands were given to the temples and the priests.

With the development of communications the religious centres have been made more accessible and comfortable for a stay, for the outsider particularly. But with all the temples and religious practices it should not be presumed that the people have no superstitions and belief in super natural powers, benevolent or malevolent.

The people of Bilaspur district have a typical Pahari culture where the inner religious sense of the man is tinged with omens, belief in superstitions etc.
