In the state of West Bengal the Santals and Bengalis have resided together for a long long time. It is very hard to specify a time period of their association nevertheless it is impossible to deny the symbiotic relationship between these two communities. Exchanges as we know occurred on all fronts and it is interesting to observe these interactions.
