A tribal village of Juanga tribe - one of the most primitive tribes in the country. This village is now known as a village of widows as males die young by consuming hooch sold illegally in the area - commonly known as Bihari Pani. No improvement in life of people in last 40 years though now the village has got electricity, water connection and a primary school. Public health system does not work here. People most dependent of farming and collecting edible bulbous roots from nearby forest. Forest has depleted to vast track of barren land in the vicinity for illegal cutting of trees. Gone are the days when the village used to be surrounded with big Sal and Mohua trees. Young boys spend the time playing cards in village community hall - earlier used for entertainment and meeting by elderly people for the welfare of the society.
