The coal capital of India, Dhanbad displays a rich culture diversity enriched with folk music, arts and paintings. Jhumar, Phagua, Udasi are some of the popular folk music that form an integral part of the culture in this region. It is also famous for its unique form of painting called Paitkar painting which depicts life after death. \n\nLitti chokha is the local favourite and people not from just Dhanbad but all of Bihar and Jharkhand love this local delicacy. Litti is similar to what people in other parts of India call bati/gakkar, i.e. a flattened wheat flour dough ball baked at a high temperature. The difference is that you fill a spiced up, baked mixture of chana (gramflour) inside the dough ball. Chokha is made with mashed potatoes. \n\nAll the main Hindu festivals like Diwali, Makar Sankranti and Holi are celebrated with great pomp. Interestingly, the sixth day after the nationwide festival of Holi is celebrated, it is played again with more gusto in Bihar and Jharkhand. This is probably because historically, those who migrated outside the state to find jobs would not be able to reach back home by the exact festival date.
