PART V – Biography : On perusal of the syllabus, it can be seen that the syllabus is very vast and perhaps the pattern being followed in other languages have been  followed. May be these books are being prescribed in various Colleges and Universities. Apart from the subjects being studied at various Universities, the books could be referred for general knowledge and to have an in depth knowledge about the Santali literature and Santal people. However, clear information is not available whether these subjects, courses are being imparted in various under graduate course at various colleges. It is natural to expect that the course contents need to align to the syllabus being prescribed in various educational institutions. The availability of book was a prime concern and still it is continuing and the students and persons aspiring to pursue the subjects face daunting task in finding or arranging books. It is in this context, all are being requested to make everybody know the source and place where these books could be found. The coaching institutes should also come to the fore to make these books, reference material available in the interest of the students as well as the discerning people. May be due to the fact that very few are opting to take this subject as an optional, the support is not coming forth as return is minimum or not lucrative. In order to see students take up this subject and preparing for the coveted examination, it is incumbent upon everybody to pool together information and material to generate an interest/atmosphere to inspire the students to pursue their career through mother tongue. All concerned are requested to share information with us and send the same in the email id which would further be disseminated. The days are not far, when the success would instill a sense of confidence among people and this would be a befitting reply to the persons who are moving away from the lap of mother tongue.
