Abstract
Sociologists such as Surajit Sinha and N.K. Bose, along with a large number of other scholars, have posited that Sanskritization occurred among the majority of Indian tribes as a result of contact with Great Traditions such as Hinduism and Christianity. However, there are also instances of cultural revivalism taking place in India. There are many more communities that are engaged in the struggle to maintain their ethnic aboriginal identity. The cases of Gujjar, Patel, and the Kurmis of Chotanagpur are examples of cases in which the researchers have found just a small number of parallels between the cases. Within the scope of this study, the author has made an effort to comprehend the cultural revivalism drive that members of the Kurmi community in the Indian states of Jharkhand, West Bengal, and Orissa are pursuing in order to reclaim their ethnic identity. This researcher has made an effort to comprehend the procedure of keeping one's ethnic identification with a new inspiration. This paper also addresses the issue of the identity crisis that this group is currently experiencing.
