About Hul Divas
Hul is a Santhali word meaning revolution. Hul Divas commemorates the martyrdom of four brothers - Sidho, Kanhu, Chand and Vairav. They led the SanthalHul (1855-57), assembling a large number of Santhals against the British Rule, one of the fiercest uprisings that the British administration ever faced in India. With the battle-cry of AbuaDisum, Abua Raj (Our State, our control) they announced freedom from the oppression of British rule.
