I welcome you to the Management Institute of Kamla Nehru Institute of Physical and Social Sciences, Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh India.
The whole nation is being swept by winds of Liberalization/ Globalization/Privatization, but the fruits of the new economic regime are unfortunately not equally accessible to every region of the country. In this brave new world only those are likely to survive and strive, who have cutting edge knowledge and skills in a professional discipline. This institute was started with the noble mission of arming students of this region with necessary skills and attitudes so that they are not found wanting when pitted against students of more developed regions of the country. We have inherited this vision from Babuji and I am happy that the institute is making rapid strides and is poised for wide acclaim.
“You Give Us Your Best in These Two Years and We Will Give You a Lifetime of Success.”
Wishing all the students scintillating success.

Role in Vedic culture and literature

Lord Rama divided, during his life-time, his vast kingdom among his brothers and sons. His son, Kush succeeded to the south Kosala with its capital at Ayodhya. The old city of Sultanpur which lay on the right bank of the Gomti is said to have been called Kusapura or Kusabhavanpur, having been named after Kusa, who is locally believed to have founded it. Kusa appears to have extended the Aryan ideals and institutions to the Vindhya region. The story of his marriage with a Nag princess testifies that he propagated Vedic culture among aborigines. Afterwards the central power of Kosala became week and Dirghayajna, the ruler of Ayodhya, was subdued by Bhima, one of five Pandavas in the Mahabharat.
The tract of river Gomti around the village Dhopap (pargana Chanda, tehsil Kadipur) is described as Dhutpap in Visnu Puran.

Historical background

The Sultanpur district Gazeteer published in 1903 A.D. sheds some light on the history and origine of the district. It notes that the chief land owning families of the time were the Rajputs of various clans, who possessed 76.16 percent of the total land area. Among them Raghuvanshies and the Rajkumars along-held over one-fourth of the district, while their kinsmen, the Bachgotis and Rajwars owned 11.4 and 3.4 percent, respectively. The Rajkumars were the proprietors of nearly the whole of Aldemau. Their chief was the Raja of Dera. The head of Bachgotis was the Raja of Kurwar while the taluqdar of Samrathpur represented another branch of the family. The chief of Rajwars was the taluqdar of Pratabpur. Another member of the Rajwars family was the Raja of Hasanpur. Allied to him were the families of Maniarpur and Gangeo and between them they owned a large portion of the central area. Next to Bachgotis and their kinsmen come the Bandhalgotis, who owned almost the whole of Amethi pargana. Their head was the Raja of Amethi, while the taluqdar Shahgarh belonged to the same clan. The Rajputs with large properties in the district were the Bhale Sultans who owned 4.72 percent, the Kanhapurias with 4.7 percent, and the Bais with 2.8 percent. Of the Bhale Sultans half were Hindus and half Muslims. They were dwelling in the north west corner of the district in the parganas of Isauli, Musafirkhana and Jagdishpur. The Kanhpurias were chiefly confined to pargana Gaura Jamo, almost the whole of which belonged to them. The Bais were scattered about in small groups.
Another important branch of the land owning clans was the house of Raj Sah. Raj Sah had three sons, Ishri Singh, Chakrasen Singh and Rup Chand. From Ishari Singh, after nine generations came Bijai Chand, who had three sons. Harkaran Deo. Jit Rai, and Jionarain. Harkaran Deo was the ancestor of Nanemau taluqdar; the descendants of Jit Rai were the owners of Meopur Dahla, Meopur Dhaurua, and Bhadaiyan; and from Jionarain descended the Raja of Dera. The fourth descendant of Jionarain led the first of the six colonies of Rajkumars across the Gomti and planted himself at Dera on the banks of the river. This house became one of the main branches of the Bachgotis of Sultanpur.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century Babu Madho Singh, eleventh in descent from Jionarain was the rular of the estate which consisted of 101 villages. Babu Madho Singh who is remembered as the successful leader and who managed his property well died in 1823. He was succeeded by his widow, Thakurain Dariao Kunwar, a most remarkable woman, who through toil and turmoil not only bravely held her own, but added to her estates than her husband had done in his lifetime. The direct line of succession had ended with the death of Thakurain's husband, Babu Madho singh. The Next male collateral heir was Babu Rustam Sah, whom Thakurain disliked. Babu Rustam Sah was in the service of Maharaja Man Singh, the nazim of the day and with his help succeeded in capturing Thakurain and made her write a deed in his favour. That formidable woman, whose pride was hurt grieved for a few months and died. Rustam Sah was given the possession of the property by the nazim. Rustam Sah came to know later that the nazim had ulterior motives in helping him. A fight would have followed and Rustam would have killed nazim, but for a pandit who advised him that the time was not propitious. Later, Rustam Sah sought asylum across the British border and was made the taluqdar of Dera, which consisted of 336 villages. Rustam Sah rendered excellent service during the Mutiny. He died in 1877 and was succeeded by his nephew, Raja Rudra Pratap Singh.
Rasulabad is the biggest village of Sultanpur under the tehsil of Musafirkhana. It is situated at the bank of river Gomti.
Bariar Singh, the youngest brother of Rustam Sah, received an estate of 20 villages and three pattis in the parganas of Baraunsa and Aldemau in return for services rendered during the Mutiny. This property was known as Damodra or Sultanpur.
All these local rajas were under the control of Dilli hukumat and nawabs of Avadh

                                     The Inhabitants
Religion and Caste-wise classification

               In 1961, there were 87.7% of the population of the district was Hindus population. In the rural area, 88.1%, and in the urban area 69.0% of the inhabitants were Hindus. In 1971, their number rose but the percentage came down to 87.0%. They were, as usual, divided into the four principal castes, the Brahmins, the Kshatriya, the Vaishya and the Shudra, and their numerous sub-castes.
                 The Brahmins are found in every part of the district in large numbers and are generally engaged in agriculture, trade or business. The majority of them belong to the Sarwariya or Saryuparin subdivision, followed by Kanaujias or Kanyakubjas, Sakaldipis, Sanadhya, Tiwaris and Upadhyayas. The Tiwaris of Lachhamanpur had a great reputation for Sanskrit learning and Astronomy and they maintained a free Sanskrit pathshala at their houses.
                   Mention may also be made of the Shukul and Pandeya subdivisions of the Brahmins the chief village of the former being Shukulpur. Other Shukuls are to be found in Jagdishpur, where they have given their name to Bazar Shukul. The Pandeys form the bulk of the population in the villages of Gangapur, Paliya Golpur, Gopalpur, Budhna, and Kotiya, while there scatterted colonies are also to be found in many  other places.
                   Among the Kshatriyas or Rajputs of the district, representatives of almost everysub-castes are found. The most important are the Bachgotis and Rajkumars. Other well known sub-castes are the Bhale Sultan, Bais, Bandhalgoti, Chauhan, Kanhpuriya, Raghuvanshi, Bisen, Gaharwar, Gautam, Kachhwaha, Somvanshi, Chandel, Panwar, Sakarwar, Surajvanshi, Gargvanshi, Durgavanshi, Bilkharia and Baghel.
                    The vaishs are distributed all over the district, though their number in the Jagdishpur and Baraunsa parganas is large. They belong mostly to the Agrahari subcaste. Of the remainder a large number are Kasaundhas and Baranwals. The chief occupation of the Vaishs has been moneylending, trade and business. Many of them are also government servants and memebers of lerned and technical profession.
                      The Kayasthas are also fairly numerous and are spread all over the district. Large numbers of them reside in the villages of Parasrampur, Sondhanpur, Tilokpur, Nawada and Gursari. There is also a colony of Kayasthas at Isauli, another at Amrupur.
                        Among the cultivating castes, the Ahirs, who also call themselves Yadavas, are very numerous in this district. They are fairly distributed over the district but are found in larger number in parganas Isauli, Asal and Chanda. They are very industrious and can be classed among the first rank of cultivators.
                         Next come Muraos, Kurmis, Lodhs and Garariyas. The last named frequently persue their traditional occupation of keeping sheep and goats, but are chiefly engaged in agriculture.
                         The other subcastes, mostly occupational and generally included in the other backward classes are the Kumhars, Kahars, Barhai, Bharbhuja, Lohar, Loniya, Tamoli, Mali, Sonar, Barai, Gosain, Nai and Darzi.
                          Among the Scheduled Castes are included the Chamars, also known as Ghusiya, Jhusia or Jatav; Kori, Pasi or Tarmali, Dhobi, Banmanus, Khatik, Hela, Dharkar, Nat, Musahar, Beriya, Baheliya, Majhwar, Kanjar, Bansphor, Shilpkar, Majhabi, Chero, Karwal, Ghasiya, Bhuyiar, Kol, Bajgi, Dabgar, Kalabaj, Bhantu, Bangali, Beldar and Dhanuk.
                           The status of harijans in society has improved very much and notions of untouchabilty and restriction on the use of wells and temples by them are fast disappearing. Intercaste relations are also, in general, getting increasingly harmonised.

                            The Muslims constituted 12.2 % of the total population in 1961 which has increased now. In this district, as elsewhere, they are divided into two main sects, the Shiya and Sunni. Their subdivisions represented in the district are numerous. The Saiyyads reside chiefly in pargana Isauli. The Sheikhs previously owned a few villages in Isauli and Sultanpur. They belong mostly to the Siddiqui and Qurreshi subdivisions. The chief clans to which the Pathans of the district belong are the Yusuf Jai, Ghori and Lodi formerly they held a large area of land, particularly in village Hamzapur in pargana Aldemau. There are also in the district the muslim Rajputs, mostly converts from the Bachgoti, Bhale Sultan, Bais, Chauhan and Shakarwar sects of Hindu Rajputs. Besides these, there are also Kanhpuriyas, Bisens and Raghuvanshis. These converted Rajputs are confined largely to the parganas of Miranpur, Gaura Jamo, Jagdishpur, Aldemau and Isauli. The remaining muslims of the district belong mostly to occupational subdivisions like the Julaha, Ghosi, Faqir, Behna, Nai, Darzi and Churihar. There is large number of Muslim Gujars in the Sultanpur and they are chiefly found along the western borders in Jagdishpur, Gaura Jamo and Amethi.
                           In 1961, they constituted 0.1% of the total population and they mostly resided in the urban ares. According to the census of 1991 their number, however, decresed. Some of the Sikhs consist of immigrants from Pakistan.

                           There were very few Christians in the district in 1961 but they are increased in number now. They belong to the Roman Catholic and Protestant sects and are mostly Indians converted to Christianity by the Zenana, Bible, and Medical Mission which started evangelical work in the district around 1891.

                     They are very few and negligible in the district.

Home Life
                     The basic pattern of the houses has not changed very much except in regard to the use of bricks and cement in place of mud.  Mud is  predominant material of house walls in villages and burnt bricks in the town. Tiles constitute an important roof material in villages. However, in urban areas the roof materials  generally used are concrete and stone slabs.
                     The only item of furniture in the houses of poor in rural area are ordinary munjand bamboo cots and a wooded takhat. However, chairs, tables, beds, sofa etc. are also used by financially better off people, specially in urban areas.
                     The inhabitants of the district are generally vegetarian by habit and preferance, although the number of those who use meat, fish, eggs is considerable. Wheat, gram, rice, maze and pulses, together with milk, curd, ghee or vegetable oil, other edible oils, sugar or jaggery and common vegetables constitute the staple food of well-to-do section of population. Among villagers, jwar, bajra, barley, sattu (flour of parched gram and barley) and chabena (parched grain) are also common. The principal constituents of food are roti and a bowl of pulse with or without cooked vegetables. Tea (in towns) and smoking of bidi is common (in rural areas).
