Summary

If a line be drawn through the middle of the Manbhum ditrict from north to south parallel to the contours of the principal elevations in the country the statistics give the following:— TABLt I. East of the line. [...] Philip adds that while in the whole State the Sonthals are given as having the largest incidence of leprosy 149 out of 598 or about a quarter of the whole ; yet in Bamanghatty the sub-division in which we get the lowest incidence of leprosy the population of Sonthals predominates. [...] In consequence of the sloping nature of the land and the porous nature of the soil large areas of land are unable to yield crops except in the rainy season; and even the main crop that of rice is precariously dependent upon a steady fall of rain in the monsoons. [...] The main difference then that we find between the central highly leprous zone and the less endemic areas to the east and west is one of diet dependent in the central area on the poor and irregular nature of the crops available for human consumption and for fodder for cattle which conditions again are dependent on the physical features of the country and the nature of the soil. [...] Doubtless there is a certain amount of exemption from leprosy due to the low humidity and lower temperature of the Ranchi-Hazaribagh plateau; but the same cannot be said for the difference between the plains of the Gangetic valley and the slopes of east Manbhum and west Bankura.
