Indian Tribal Life

Chaturbhuj Sahu (Author)
Synopsis The tribal people of India constitutes 8.08 percent of the total population of India. They are generally inhabiting in different ecological and geoclimatic conditions mostly inaccessible to other people. So each tribal group is distinct from the other in ethnic affinity and social practices. They are having some salient features which make them unique. The cultural identification or way of living is still strong among them. The government since independence, is trying to develop and improve the socio-economic condition of the tribal people. A huge amount has already been spent over the tribes in the name of tribal upliftment, but the tribals are still to join main stream of national development. The pathetic situation of the tribal life has attracted the attention of academicians to present diagnostic studies afresh. This volume has been prepared with the same objective. The volume encompasses a wide range of papers covering so many important aspects of tribal life. The planners and implementers must have the ethnographic knowledge of the Indian tribes for the proper implementation of development programmes. With this broad view in mind the editor has tried to present in this volume the life and culture of Indian tribes.
