Gumla , Jharkhand

Gumla is one of the districts of Jharkhand which has an interesting history to its name. The name is derived from the term Gau Mela which means a cow fair. Yes this country is definitely all about respecting the cattle. The Gau mela which took place here once a year was the only way in which people from all over could purchase their yearly goods. Thus this fair had all the goods that you could think of and people from neighbouring villages would come here to purchase goods from a very long and also auction their cows. Thus Gumla came into existence for the common people who lived here. There is still tradition of some festivals here which are not celebrated here. Karma is a festival of brohers and sisters .It is celebrated in rotation from one village to another .Like other festivals it is also a way of merry making by local population. sarhul is one festival every one should be here for as it features the very famous Sarhul dance. There are of course some great places to expore nearby. Anjan is a village very famous for the archaeological importance. Baghmunda is famous for its stone idols and Rajendra for its scenic value. Dewaki is a place of religious importance. It is famous for a Shiv-Parvati temple. During Sawan month devotees from every corner visit here to offer water to the Shiva Linga and the place becomes a fair ground. Thus Gumla is one place in Jharkhand which has a lot of diversity and gives every one a sneak peek into a life which is created by hard work and simple living.
