Primitive Tribal Groups in India: Tradition, Development and Transformation

R M Sarkar (Author)
Synopsis The Primitive Tribal Groups embrace such tribal people who are characteristically benighted in the different dimensions of their way of life. Economically they still indicate their specific trend of continuation of the archaic pattern of existence. Living very close to nature and their utter dependence on the bountiful natural resources their way of life and basic philosophy have been moulded accordingly and thus any sort of severance from this deep-rooted matrix results in an imbalancing situation. After having been specially identified as the Primitive Tribal Groups by the Government of India on the basis of certain administrative criteria, these sorted out tribal communities are promised to offer all types of help and cooperation for mitigating their hazards and anxieties, consternations and tribulations in their life-situation. It has been observed from the working of the various extensive efforts, taken up by the government, for the developmental activities of the ill-fated people that varied constraints have thwarted the very endeavour due to certain obvious reasons. In order to understand the very pretext of this unwanted situation there is an urgent necessity to study the different aspects of life and thinking patterns of these primitive tribes distinctively as they differ from each other in content and character. This anthology has taken the ardent pledge to highlight copiously the integrated perspective of the different dimensions of life of the Primitive Tribal Groups living in the different ecological settings in India and having discrete understandings as well as problems. The total canvas has been designed here with the empirical findings on PTGs contributed by the celebrated scholars with conspicuous expertise in the domain of tribal studies. It is expected that this compendium would, by virtue of its merits, invite a wide range of readership from the different disciplines of human studies in general and the administrative personnel connected with the tribal development planning and implementation pattern especially among the Primitive Tribal Groups in particular.
