Draupadi Murmu will become the 15th President of the country. Murmu will become the country’s second woman and the first tribal president.

Draupadi Murmu comes from the Santhal, an ancient tribe of India. Santhal community is basically found in Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Assam, Tripura. In terms of population, it is the largest tribe in Jharkhand. Let me tell you that if Draupadi Murmu becomes the President, what can change in the ways of Rashtrapati Bhavan. Wife Bhaskar spoke to Sneha Murmu about this and got to know her lifestyle, mannerisms and food habits.

Santhal folktales claim that they came from Hihiri, who was later identified as Ahuri of Hazaribagh district. It used to be a dense forest. From Ahuri they spread to Chota Nagpur, then to Jhalda, Patkum and South, the Santhali language speaking people.

what is the dressing style of santhals

Talking to Woman Bhaskar, Sneha Murmu explains that Santhali wear handloom clothes (naturally made clothes). Children wear kancha (dhoti). On the other hand, girls wear a saree made of a material like cotton, which is called Jhal or Futa saree. Although some people have changed their dress after settling in the cities, they still give importance to their traditional clothes at any wedding or festival.

Traditionally, Santhali women wear sarees with colorful thread checks, on weddings or special occasions, they wear red sarees with similar designs.

Painting on the walls to decorate the house

Some designs were made on the walls of most of the houses in the tribal society, which were used to decorate the house in the past. Once a year or on Makar Sankranti or Diwali, some designs are made on the walls of the house. Patterns for this design are hard to find on the internet or in books. These santhali women have their own creativity or learn from their childhood in their home.

Connection with nature, life depends on plants

The Santhali basically depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Sneha says that even today there are many villages in Jharkhand, in whose homes only clothes are bought from the market. They depend on nature for everything else. Even today many people buy clothes instead of grains.

What are the main customs and festivals

Santhali do not worship idols, they worship nature and their ancestors. Only one man of the house does the worship and teaches the method of worship to his children. Apart from this, worship is done during the Baaha festival. In it, five great people of the community, who are called Modhod in the Santhali language, perform this puja. On this day, people of the Santhal tribal community revere bows and arrows. They dance to the beat of drums and drums and pour water on each other. Apart from this, the process of Baaha festival in Santhals starts before Holi. In different villages, on different dates, special nature worship events are held in Baaha, Baha means festival of flowers. On this day, people of the Santhal tribal community revere bows and arrows.

Daura means to sit in the basket and fill the demand

Sneha says in our marriage, the demand is filled by putting a girl in a basket ie ‘Dura’, different from others. Apart from this, no marriage mangalsutra is used here. Here we wear an iron bangle on the bride and groom’s left hand, which is called ‘Medhhe Sankom’ in Santhali language. After marriage in Santhal, the girl will not wear vermilion or mangalsutra, but it is considered important to wear this iron bangle, because this bangle is a sign of suhaag.

By sitting on the dura, something like this is fulfilled, the ritual of filling the demand.

If a boy puts color on a virgin girl, she must be married

If any youth puts color on a virgin girl, then the panchayat of the society makes him marry the girl. If the marriage proposal is not accepted by the girl, the society can punish the young man to put all the properties of the young man in the name of the girl. After the puja, distribute Sakhua, Mahua and Sal flowers. With this worship the process of matrimonial marriage begins in Santhal society. There is no practice of dowry in Santhal society. When a guest comes to the house, he fills Kasha’s lot with water and lets him wash his feet, and people follow him even after living in the city.
