Jhumri Tilaiya, Jharkhand
  
 
 
 
Jhumri Talaiya / Jumri Tilaiya / Jhumri Tellaya / Jhumri Telaiya / Tilaiya has been widely popular in Bollywood Movies
 

Jhumri which is a village in Jharkhand, whereas the word "talaiya" comes from Hindi word "tal" which

 means pond. Jhumri is also said to be a local folk dance. Some people believe it originates from

 "Jhuri", the local word for "brush", which is commonly used as fuel for cooking in the villages.

Another theory is that the town of Jhumri Talaiya gets its name from to its location between

 two separate villages Jhumri and Talaiya Dam.

 
 
 

Some people used to doubt the existence of Jhumri Talaiya, believing it to be an imaginary place. The name also carried overtones of derision and insignificance. For instance, the phrase "Medical Journal of Jhumri Talaiya" would often be used to refer to a shoddily produced, insignificant medical journal.

 

In many ways, Jhumri Talaiya is the Indian equivalent of Timbuktoo, also widely considered to be an imaginary place. This reference is seen in several Hindi movies. Often, when Jhumri Talaiya natives attend interviews, they are greeted with surprise that a town called Jhumri telaiya, listed in their resume, actually exists.

Tilaiya (Jhumri Tilaiya) was once a major mica mining centre. While laying a railroad through Koderma in 1890s, the British first discovered vast mica deposits in this region. Mining activities started soon after and many mining houses Chatu Ram Bhadani and Horil Ram Bhadani. CH Private Ltd. was the predecessor of Mica Kings, which controlled the largest share of mica mining and export activity in the world at a time.

Most of the mica used to be exported to USSR, for space and military equipment. With the dissolution of the USSR and the discovery of a synthetic substitute for mica, the mining activity declined in 1990s. The huge mansions belonging to the mine owners, sprawling over acres of land, can still be found in the town. Apart from that business was moved to government corporations in 1973-74 through a government venture called as Mica Syndicate which was having Mica mines in Sapahi, 40 km from Tilaiya. This government venture was renamed to Jharkhand State Mineral Development corporation (JSMDC). Mica mining through government corporations went on well into the mid 1990s and slowly succumbed to lack of demand / political willpower and changing times.
