Munda from1875 to 1900 and Sidho and Kanho are the legendary heroes
of the tribals of Jharkhand state who fought against the oppressive
rule of the British government. Birsa Munda, now regarded as god, fought
for the tribals natural right over forests and land that was mercilessly
being acquired by the British for exploitation. After a long fight,
Birsa Munda was captured by the British authorities and died in prison.
Sidho and Kanho were another set of revolutionaries among the tribals,
now regarded as tribal heroes. The region enshrouded in the hills and
forests inaccessible to a large segment of people. The tribes of this
state are living here from thousands of years and not much changed in
their life and culture over the ages bearing last few decades.
Many scholars now believe that the language used by tribes in the state
of Jharkhand is identical to the one used by Harappan people. This has
led to a great interest in the deciphering of Harappan inscriptions
using rock paintings and language used by these tribes. In the last
fifty years, the tribes of this region fought against the hegemony of
Northern Bihar, a region that gained from the mineral deposits of this
region like anything. Jharkhand became a state under the Republic of
India on November 15, 2000 and now it is poised for a great leap forward.
