Fairs and Festivals of Indian Tribes

Robin David Tribhuwan (Author)
Synopsis Fairs and festivals have been a part of the fabric of tribal India for thousands of years. Even today there traditions continue in all the 573 tribal groups prevalent in the country. At the same time the forces of social change are erasing some of the customs and traditions associated with tribal fairs and festivals. This book unveils fairs and festive celebrations of some major tribes of India. The subject is vast though, but some one has to start with a small beginning. An attempt therefore has been made to unravel the cultural and symbolic components of fairs and festivals of Indian tribes, with a hope that scholars and researchers from different disciplenes and various parts of India would take cover other areas and tribes in near future. This book will be useful to students and research scholars of anthropology, sociology, museology, history, rural and tribal studies, social work, art and general readers as well. Besides, this it will also generate interest among N.G.O.’s working to preserve and revitalize tribal heritage.
