Though the rituals differ with the various districts of Bengal, among Hindus, it is usually classified into two: the Ghoti and Bangal rituals.

    October 18, 2016

    Answer to Sudarsan Deogharia.


    Families with surname Deogharia are also Chatterjees. The title of Deogharia belongs to Chatterjee families and are of Kashyap gotra of erstwhile Panchkot kingdom (near Adra, Purulia, West Bengal). “DEOGHARIA” is the title given by the regional kings to those KULIN RADHI BRAHMIN OR KANYAKUBJA BRAHMIN, who were appointed as RAJPUJARI for their area (eg for chotanagpur area padma maharaja , ratu maharaja are given Deogharia upadhi for the rajpurari of Ranchi and lohardagga area,AND/or Maanbhum’s king like dhanbad’s surrounded area and puruliya’s ANARA area(Kashipur Rajbari) or SINGBHUM’s area ruler’s kept them on khutti , chiabasa and jamsedpur area ) .The original title may be Mukherjee,banarjee chatterji,ganguli, mishra.Some of our angsester are may be from Chinpina, CHATTERJEE brahmin’s are called DEOGHORIA, upadhi given by Kashipur Rajbari.

    November 19, 2016

    I’m sorry to post my comment in a so called ‘matrimonial discussion!’ but trust me there is nothing about castes and creeds!! All was about the ‘power’ and ‘who supported the powerful’. The higher castes(titles also!) on the origin of Bengal are based on

    1) Royal family background
    2) Jamindar family background
    3) Mughol-given royal posts
    4) British-given titles

    It was about the ‘power’ and social freedoms that you now worry about…

    5) Brahmins before Ballal Sen and ‘Kulin Pratha’
    6) Kulin Brahmins originated with ‘Kulin Pratha’
    7) Bramins from Odisa

    It was about one of the most ancient and rich culture of India they practised…The holy ‘Dharmagrantha’s and that is why they were admired by the people written of my first four points.

    There are around 3,000 surnames used by the people originated from Bengal and among them almost 300 titles are used by Brahmins(i.e. around 10% )!!!So, it is one kind of stupidity to worry about ‘those days’ power,title and customs’…These total article by admin (and also my comment) have literally a very small space to discuss about the ‘history’…

    those who are interested and read Bengali fonts are provided with a link bellow…

    June 15, 2017

    Gotra-kashyapa gotta
    Sir,ive been so keen about my origin & the terms like my caste & all so I’ve done a lil bit of research by myself,
    I’ve got too many illustrations & too many verses of what I really am not that aware
    Like I’ve found that Malakar were the garland Weaver’s but the inscription on the site also says that it’s just assumed as the it sounds so…
    I’ve also been hearing of my great grandfather who was a zamindar in e.b before the partition, but a garlanded cannot afford a zamindari that time & even the people won’t let him too..
    & About the gotra
    I’ve read that Kashyapa gotra belongs to brahmins
    I’ve asked some elders & they all told me diff stories
    I’ve also found that Malakar & some 8 other ‘kar’s were the direct descendants of Lord vishwakarma, having excellent craftskills,engineering & architectural skills in their blood & bones..
    I don’t know what it is about..
    I can’t even decide…
    The deeper I go, the more confusion it creates..
    So, all I wanna ask you is
    #1. They have been direct descendents of a high ranked diety,one of the highest,! doesn’t that makes them a brahmin ?
    #2. My family follows the 10th day dosha & 11th shraddha system, that is practiced by brahmins too,& most of our rituals being the same as them
    #3. I bore a poita
    #4. Kashyapa gotra belongs to one of the purest of brahmins, doesn’t it makes me a brahmin ?
    If not,then what caste I would be belonging to ?
