Tripura, the land of History and Legends


Apart from Tripuri and Indigenous people, there are other group of people in Tripura. They can be broadly classified in to two. Bengali and Manipuri.

The Manipuri had a relation with Tripuri people since thousand of year old. They were connected to Tripuri people by matrimonial relations. In the past, Manipur was neighbour of Tripura kingdom, as a result many Tripuri king and princes married to Manipuri princess. This let to friendly and matrimonial relations with Manipuri people. Since then many Manipuri people came to Tripura to live in. The king also brought many Manipuri artist to perform different cultural programs in Royal courts. They were experts in classical dance and many folk dances. Their Ras Nritya is a world famous classical dance.

The Bengali can be divided in to two communities viz. Hindu and Muslim. In the past before accession to India, Muslim community was more then the Hindu counters part. But after the independence, there was Hindu Muslim riots, in erstwhile East Pakistan, which led to large scale migration of minority Hindu Bengali from there to neighboring states of India. These led to huge migration of Hindu Bengali to erstwhile Tripura kingdom, which changed the demographic pattern of Tripura and reversed the Hindu Muslim ratio of Bengalis in Tripura. Finally in the post partition migration transformed the majority native Tripuri people had been reduced into minority status.

Bengalis are very hard working and laborious, many of them are involved in business, because of which whole of the economic and commercial transactions are controlled by them. They have folk dances, folksongs like baul, palligiti, and Rabidra nritya, Rabindra sangit which has become back bone of bangle culture. Though they clam their mother tongue as Bengali but in fact the local language spoken in Tripura is perhaps far from to be called a dialect of Bengali.
