 Our father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi remarked that "Womanhood is not restricted to the kitchen", he also told that "Only when the woman is liberated from the slavery of the kitchen, that her true spirit may be discovered”. But unfortunately “By and large women staying in rural area are underprivileged and sustain a very pitiable quality of life. The insufficiency of primary education of women is one of the important factors for underestimation. So far as women health is concerned in rural area they are the most deprived population in India. This paper is trying to bring out the factors that are responsible for gender inequality and to understand about the inequality in sharing of ancestral land. Furthermore it has also been tried to find out that how far ritual process of rural area is responsible for gender inequality. This is elementary study conducted only in one village with an intention to a carry out the same pattern of research in an immense process in future.
