Books, Magazine And News Paper
Magazine And News Papers :
Most rural Oroans have very little access to general information on national event, employment etc. Those who have, generally get it from newspapers published in the regional languages. There is complete lack of periodicals and news bulletins published in the Kurukh from time to time, such as Bij Biinko (Morning Star) published for only six months in 1940; Dhumkuria (Dormitory or House of Learning) published for about a year and a half during the years 1962-1963. The publication of these monthly magazines had been stopped for want of adequate finance. Another major factor responsible for the discontinuation of these magazines is their very low circulation which seems to be natural for a speech community whose literacy rate is 10.56 per cent. Besides monthly journals, there is some creative literature written by the Kurukhs. These include Munta Pump Jhumpa (Bunch of First Flowers) by Dawle Kujur (1950) ; Innelanta (Present day0 by Ignes Kujur (1962); Kurukh Sanni Kiiri (Kurux Short Stories) by Julius Tigga (1962). There are a few other books for adult education, such as Pardikarge Angitana Puthi ( book for adult literary ) by C. M. Tiga (1939), Luurgahi Mahba (the importance of learning) by C. M. Tiga (1940?) Bolo Ganit (elementary Arithmatic) by C. M. Toppo (1940).
Now a days, "Singi Dia, Published from New Delhi and "Nam Kurukhat" published from Pathalgon, Chhattisgarh are very good magazine and publishing continue. Kurukh page on The Gorkhpatra(Nepal) is coming fortnightly in Nepal.
