A Hindu social group of people called the Rajbansis living in the extreme Northern region of West Bengal have been very little studied. The Census reports have given some accounts but imperfectly. Hodgson, Dalton, Risley, O Malley, Gait, Hutton and some other scholars have described some historical and ethnological accounts of them. Grierson has touched a fringe of their dialect. K.P. Biswas has given some account of the dialect and Folk culture of Rangpur. This monograph is an attempt to give an idea of the folk life and culture of the Rajbansis living in Darjeeling Terai (Siliguri), Jalpaiguri and Cooch-Behar of West Bengal. The Study of folk life and culture of these people has become important when attitudes are changing fast due to impact of Western civilisation and more so after the partition of Bengal when a large Scale Immigration of people from lower North and East Bengal is taking place in this area and within a very short time a profound culture mixing is sure to take place.
