The claim that the Aryans brought agriculture to India is incorrect; agriculture predates the Aryans by several millennia. The article regretfully paints a very confused picture of early Indian history and needs work. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Liontooth (talk • contribs) 01:34, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
This article although not containing detailed discussion on the referred community still gives a very clear picture about the santhals in clear and lucid language .A more detailed and comprehensive discussion is yet to come (user [sumitsoren]).
The tone of the article is not very neutral - "axis of evil" vs the "simple and honest Santhals"? Please. Plus punctuation errors. If I get time, I'll edit it a bit, but too busy at the moment, sorry. I don't know enough about the Santhals to write it again, though. sbrocky.
They eat excreation of their people.
About Olchiki script and Santali language
It is not appropriate to say that the srcipt olchiki is meant for santal peoples only and recent invention. The invention of olchiki script instill a sense of confidence, pride resumnate, solidarity and confidence amongst the santal, Kolhe, Malhe etc peoples for the developement of modern santali language and literature residing in the state of Orissa, West-Bengal, Bihar, Assam and other part of Indian state to get their modern Indians identity as " Jharkhandi". On the principle of identity of self rather than imitation the invention of olchiki script was done which is not fully deceipher from the ancient indic script found from the excavation of Mahenjodaro & Harrapan civilisation.It can also played as modern role to strenthen the Indians literature & culture.If the old civilisation became ancient civilisation of BHARAT known presetly as Indus Valley civilisation,than under what circumtances peoples who are engaging in resarching work telling Santhal "music, culture & Olchiki script"are different from modern Hindustani music & Script and culture. Rather it can be said "Olchiki Script" is the nature Shape and its formative style also proves the same, whereas the sanskrit script "Devnagiri" is Akar Shape without the nature Akar can't came out.it is the unique distinct modern invented "indict script" which has both capital and small letter with its short hand.The Santali Language music and culture are not only base of world language and culture but also root of modern Bharatiya script,culture and languages.The Sanskrit languages and groups of culture came out and developed from Santal,Ho,Kol,Munda etc language and cultutre and known as Vedic literature and Culture whereas the santali literature and culture are Pre-vedic instead of categorising as "Austro-Asiatic Groups" and Munda Family of language.In modern India Hindi played as national language of country as per the constitution but presently failed to bind the modern Indians culture by the modern literature, resulted the Bhasa bad ,jatibad, Khetrobad has been crop-up in the different part of India. During the time of uprising of modern Indians/Bharatiya on the bassis of socio cultural similarity and linguitical sovereingty the invention of olchiki script was also done and developed by pandit R.N.Murmu in the year of 1925,prior to that in the ending era of 19th century another script was invented by sadhu Ram Chand Murmu known as " Muj-Dandhi". It is strongly quated that the modern Olchiki scrit developed from the same script of Sadhu Ramchand Murmu.It was the quatation of Pandit R.N.Murmu also that one day "Sanat & Ponot" will came across "olchiki & Santali" language will get its recognition like others modern Indians languages in its own state which will be known "Jaher-khond" peoples state "Jharkhand".It has evident from the act of BJP lead NDA govt also who were created the Jharkhand state on the 15th day of November 2000 in the eve of New millenium. On the other hand constituent assembly on modern language also proved that, inspite of rich santali literature both modern and traditional on the 14th day of september 1949 debated under the presidentship of Pandit Jabaharlal Nehru the inclusion of santali language was ignored in the VIII scheduled of the constitution as well as the creation of Jharkhond state. The non creation of Jharkhand state and non inclusion of Santali language was nothing but an deliberate act and thought of the britisher who has taken the revenge from this linguitics community. As they were strongly prevented and objected by the "Jaher-Khond" peoples while they just started their supermacy over the Indians sub-continents. All these are evident from the great Santal Hool,Kolhan Bidraha,Chero,Munda andalon etc of 1785 to 1900 leaded by Baba Tilka Majhi(Murmu), Sido-Kanhu Murmu, Birsha Munda etc. But it has omitted in the modern history writer of modern Bharat.Its couse the great unawarness to the progressive modern generation of the country. During the period of creation of moder Indians state by the britisher on the basis of socio-cultural similarity and linguitically sovereighnty a separate Jharkhand state identity was also placed by Sunaram Soren, and Jaipal Singh from 1935.They were also stongly objected for inclusion of Maurbhanj,Keonjhar and Sundergarh district with modern Odissa state under Merger Act, and demanded for creation of Jharkhand state " Like Identity of self rather than imitation".It has evident from the massarcs of " GUNDURIYA FIELD" near Rairangpur of orissa on the 6th day of feb 1949. when the demand of separate identity with its own script and language meeting was called by Sunaram Soren the innocent unarmed people were massarcs ruthlesly in the name of ALGAO-BAD and their literature as ALGAO-BADI. There after these peoples script,language,culture,social etc became object of research large numbers of intlectuals researchers, scholars etc started the reaserch over the language and script,social and cultural set- up of santal,Ho,Munda etc but instead of telling the truth they try to categories the script, language and Ho,Munda, santal etc tribes with the Austro-Asiatic groupe of language and culture like the naming of Banachal state and peoples Banabasi. It can further be state here that the modern thinker who are engage in developing the adivasi community started compare the script different from the modern Indians script and languages and effort were taken by them to designed these groupes of peoples as BANABASI and state as BANANCHAL some imbecile dumps executive of different Santal organisation also dance in their tune and stated the olchiki and santali languages different from modern Indians script and Culture. Taking these advantage converted santali peoples in to Christianity also started the developement of language, literature and culture of Santal by the ROMAN script. On the other side it's facilitate them to more conversion of these linguitics peoples in mass way. Each and every educated santal,Ho,Munda etc peoples knows from their ancesters that they are the orginal inhabitants of Bharat popularly known as Hindusthan though they are not "HINDU". The word "Hindu" has been derived from the word "Hende" as per santali language "Hende" means "Black" "Thaan" means "place", in a total sense the residing place of "Black peoples" is known as "HENDE THAAN" in long long years ago they had also developed the civilisation which can challenged the world civilisation. It is evident from the present civilisation found from the excavation of Mahenjodara & Harrapa on the bank of river sindhu.It is subsequently became "HINDU THAAN" present modern peoples compare its with Hindu religion and Hindu peoples as per the river Sindhu. Than the subsequent developement of the words converted to "Hindusthan". Whearas the peoples of HENDE THAAN orginal religion were "SARI or SARNA" it has two way to preach one is "SANAT" means trasparen with out any sacrifice of lives another is "MANAT" means as per their present tradition preach by sacrificing the lives to their God & Goddeses in every village. There worshiping place is known as " Jaher-than,Disauli,Sarna etc.They are the worshiper of nature i.e. Sun & Earth and are sincear as well as truthfulness in charecter.The sculpture found from the excavation are comparing with Hindu religious dieties and idols. The word "SANATAN" has been derived from the word "SANAT" only "AN" has been included with the orginal word.After the implementation of Indian Constitution these Munda,Ho, santal,Mahale etc peoples has been included in the "Backward Class" under Article 15(4) and known as scheduled tribe under Article 342(i) and divided the Jharkhand sovereighnty and peoples in the state of Orissa,West Bengal,Bihar etc. We should not forget that there is also the provision of including and excluding the tribes, any group or community from the list under Art-342(ii).After the inclusion "SANTALI" ln the VIII scheduled of the constitution the modern thinker should refrain themself from defacing more and more.They are also some time blame the pioneer of modern indians constitution as well as they argued about the redrafting of present constitution.It is the universal truth it cannot be distorted more and ignored the demands which has already placed before the centre and state government.The centre & state government of Jharkhand should demonstrate their commitment resolve determination and capacity to combat an end the neforious design of those forces whos aim as to destroy the socio-cultural cohesion and secularity ethoes of Jaher-khand peoples. After the creation of Jharkhond state and to full fill all these demand of language,History and culture of the state it is the duty of the concerning state government to form the "State Language Commission & Judicial Commission", but alas no positive effort has so far been taken till date.It is obvious that after creation of Jharkhand state and inclusion of santali language in the scheduled VIII of the constitution great expectation in terms of raising the standard of living up grading the quality, equity and equality of social justice will raisen by these peoples. It is also fully mandate and envisages in the constitution. But it is not undrestood the created Jharkhand state is meant for whom and why ? Who are Banabasi and who are Adibasi ? reality can not be distored more. It is the time to strike togather for developement of modern and prosperous state and country under the modern constitutional set up. In this new era we should identify those elements who are engage in defacing the ancient Indians culture and literature in the name of "Cultural and National integration thought"under the guise of developement. The modern thinker should learn the meaning of ADIBASI "A" denotes for ADDI(begning),"D" for Developed,"I" for Ideal, "B" for Bravery,"A" for And,"S" for Social & "I" for Inhabitants. These peoples are presently known as ADIBASI in the present modern age they are neither BANABASI nor Girijon. They can be designated as "ADIM" means Indegenous peoples of Bharat. Is not it in the name of developement & researching the culture, script,social etc of indegenous peoples of Bharat have been kept in the edge ? Is it also presently seems that some modern Indians are became more and more untolerent towards them and again try to convert them in to Hinduism. Now the demand has already been placed before the state and centre govt for appointment of National commission for "Backward class" under Article 340 and "language commission" under article 340 to give the equality & dignity of Santali language under 345& 347 and "Sarna Riligious Commission" by Bharatiya Santali Boy's Federation,Purudhul(Philosopher's) federation and womens federation to get the recognition of santali as a state language of Jharkhand, IInd language in Orissa and West-Bengal as well as to survey the "SARNA" religious peoples. if Kerla become Malaylee and peoples are known as Kerlians, than why not "Jaher-Khond" peoples will not get their identity as Jharkhondi and language as santali as well as relgious identity like "Sikhism" like Panjab state.In the modern bharat every body has get their sub- regional identity on the basis of modern language i.e. Oriya, Bengali,Tamil, Marathi,Gujurati,Telgu,Assamiya etc than why the double standard has been adopted towards these Jharkhondi peoples and entire intellectuals mass of the country remain mum to day ? As per the modern constitution every body can reside in any part of the state and work together for development of state and country. Now the ball is in the court of centre and State government how to fulfill within the preview of modern constitution. So its need the thought of renovation and superteck to bring India in to a Modern socialist country as envisages in the constitution.According to modern new era we should change our thought, instead of engage in denouncing and defacing the ancient culture custom and tradition of this country. Every body should concentrate the work for national intregation in regard to " Literature & Culture" So that this country can became the Bharat Varsh and we will be known as Bharatiya instead of Hindustani a "nike" name given by the Mughals .In this new era of 21st century we should make out the Bharatiya calender & financial year as per our month from among the recognised languages and calculation. It will bring the complete meaning of BHARAT VARSH.As per the constitution Hindi is a National language, SAKA-ERA is national calendar " Chait" is the begning month but it has not clearify wheather it is begning of calendar or financial month.Hence the English calendar and financial year has been accepted after the implementation of the constitution. Now after the inclusion of Santali in the scheduled languages and as per caculation of santali "Magh" is a begning month and " Push" is the ending month,so we suggest "Magh to Push" should be the Calendar year and " Baisakh to Chait" should be the financial years. It will gives the modern literature and cultural sovereignty of Modern Bharat and the country will be known as "BHARAT VARSH" peoples as "BHARATIYA" instead of "Hinsuatani". Presently we are working as per the English calendar and financial year. Is not it we are searching our culture and literature inside the western literature and culture ???. So the wise old man telling "Caming together is begning,Walking together is progress and Working together is success"(188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:44, 2 January 2010 (UTC)).

Reverted move to "Santals"
I really don't see the need to make this plural. The term "Santal" seems to work to cover the whole group. In those cases where the plural is used in titles, Celts, etc. it's mainly because gramatically the singular form doesn't work for the plural in English. But in this case, I don't see how it can't be used in a sentence as "The Santal are a group which..." So I've reverted back to the singluar version. MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:45, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
- We use the plural in the article, as in the header for the info box. We could go with 'Santal(i) people' maybe? — kwami (talk) 12:55, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
We have not used the words SANTALI in Singural forms, Language Literature and Culture of Santals itself proves the plurals society, since from residing over the "North Eastern" region of India. It's proves from the tradition and myth carry forwards from Generation to Generation and written scriptures. The "Santal" is a Principal Sub-community of " KHERWALS" which can be known as ADDIM-KHERWALS(Addim Adibasi)of India or Jaher-Khond people or nature worshipers groups.

What is the difference between "Santal & Santali" is it caste entity or something more...???
I am a bloggers and posted my blogs since April- 2011, but prior to that the language, literature portals of Santal has already define and describe in every place. Let us have some discussion and clarification over the issue..caste and Linguistic..Santal & Santali...(22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:43, 3 November 2012 (UTC))
The article on Santali has some big mistake and new political influences. Where its heading written as `"Santali" people' here santali is not correct placing for name of the race. Santali is a name of SANTAL people's language. it should not be named a race. So, it should be change immediately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ghonokuashabaskey (talk • contribs) 08:09, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
Santali is a language of Kherwal ("Kher" means Birds & " Wals" means generation, So please clarify yours doubt about Language, caste or a race or community (@drBhonkol) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:56, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
The Kherwal is Ancient community of Bharat popularly known as "ADDIM-KHERWAL" their language is SANTALI, the words SANTAL is recent origin and may be from SAT=SAINT=SAINT+AL = SANTAL .(Parbati Hembram (talk) 02:02, 2 November 2013 (UTC))
