Thus the city of Jamshedpur presents a panorama of cosmopolitanism in culture, religion and race, from the very inception of its foundation as the premier steel town in the country. Because of the cross-section of Indian thought and culture, Jamshedpur occupied a singular place as it has imbibed the spirit of renaissance of the 19th century and so the living and culture of people of Jamshedpur crossed all narrow barriers and frontiers of class and caste. The city is the symbol of a miniature India where the unity in diversity, an age-old phrase in our history, is manifested truly in the life and culture of the people of Jamshedpur.
