Introduction / History

The Kudmi live in West Bengal, Orissa and Bihar. They speak, Oriya, Bengali and Hindi. There are birth and marriage rituals. Marriage is by discussion. The dead are cremated. Divorce and marrying again are allowed.

The Kudmi work in agriculture and cultivation and are generally well educated. They like dancing too. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal. Modern medicines and family planning are used by them.

In West Bengal they read and write in Bengali. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Kurmi are an Indian Hindu agricultural caste and they are not to be classed as the same as the Kudmi.
