Jitendra Prasad (Author)
Synopsis The word tribe evokes different ideas in people’s mind. The fact that remains undisputed is that it represents a type of society, which fails to catch up with the advance world. Viewed in this context the existence of tribal society in India is generally believed to have its linkage with the Indian Civilization. They continue to be a dominant social formation of traditional Indian social structure. The imperialistic design of the British colonial rule was responsible for breaking their relative isolation.
