Tribal Livelihood in Changing Perspective

Nilakantha Panigrahi (Author)

Social scientists and more particularly Anthropologists play a crucial role in understanding the processes of social formation, their influence on the social institutions and the interrelationships with the pattern of development. Owing to these facts each study on tribal society has its distinct focus in terms of their objectives, hypotheses, kind of interpretation, and adoption of inductive and deductive reasoning, subjective and objective approaches, qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection and in many other aspects. In this context technology is one of the major forces required for economic growth. Therefore, it is believed that an efficient technology transfer system would lead to an efficient use of resources. On this premise many scholars, planners, technocrats, implementers and politicians in developing countries have treated industrialisation as a synonym for economic and socio-cultural development. The importance of technology in supporting and sustaining socio-economic growth and natural development has been extensively documented over time. Both ?hard? and ?soft? domains of development of technologies are now considered as the precondition for comprehensive development of the underdeveloped communities of the world.
