Indian Tribes : Then and Now
H. C. Upreti
The book primarily deals with the tribal social structure and the changes occurring there in. India has a large concentration of tribal population. Though scattered all over the country their concentration is mainly in the Northern and Central region. Originally they lived at unapproachable places where the land was infertile with limited means of living resources. They were simple, poor, and backward. Their economic hardships and encounter with the non-tribal at times made them violent, criminal, and rebellious. After Independence Several efforts have been made through Five year plans and reservation policy etc. for their social and economic emancipation yet after more than five decades they have not been able to come at par with the rest of the society. Some other aspects of tribal society viz. India’s nomadic tribes, vanishing tribes, residence system, reservation policy and development aspects have been discussed in the separate chapters. Separate chapters have been devoted on tribes of Rajasthan and Tribal Development programmes. At the end of the book (in the appendix) two chapters have been added. One on the “Nature and subject matter of Anthropology” and second on some “Anthropological Concepts” with a view to enrich the readers. Readers interested in various aspects of the tribal studies will find the book informative and useful. ..more

The Bawarias (Socially and Politically Ignored Community)
Rajendra Prasad Gora
Every community is bearing its separate social, cultural and economic properties. Castes those are economically poor and socially neglected are included in scheduled castes. The statutory lists of scheduled castes are notified pursuance of articles 341 of the Constitution of India. After special notification for scheduled castes in Constitution of India, these castes are very poor in economic and social condition, than other castes and are poorly developed. In aforesaid reference a community also lives in isolated and outskirts of villages. The living style is very specific than other community and is called Bawaria. They look like nomadic tribes. They are also known as Khogi-Bawaria, Mogia, Bawaria, Baori, Bhora and Van Bawaria. They are mostly distributed in Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. The urban and rural communities dont like Bawarias, because they hunt and are not capable to take bath daily. They have been traditionally depending on forest products and have survived by hunting and gathering non-timber products. The degradation of forests rendered Bawaria critically helpless, landless and homeless. So they have to struggle even for any open habitat of the outskirts of human settlements. These people are away from civilization and depend on primary occupation and having separate life style, dialect and culture. Bawaria are not only illiterate but also shorn of vocational or livelihood skills. They have less drinking water, education, medical facilities and this community is categorized with many evils. They are traditionally backward from social, economical, educational and are very far from cultural development. This community has very low population in all the regions, therefore this community is politically and socially neglected. Hence this community is unable to follow the progress. After seventy years of our independence we must evaluate how far we have succeeded in achieving our goal related to the scheduled castes and nomadic tribal people and their socio-cultural and economic development. It seems that the various plans and programmes and their implementation could not play a catalyst role in the terms of generating the forces within the scheduled castes and tribal communities, which can promote change in the socio-cultural and economic conditions of these communities. In this context it is being realized that in making the attempts for the development of scheduled castes and tribal communities, they have to come forward to take the responsibility of their development themselves. Though their socio-cultural and economic status has not changed much, their attitudes and lifestyles are being affected or influenced by the development interventions. Thus it assumes significance to explore the socio-cultural and economic study of Bawaria community.  ..more

Eco-Cultural Tribal Development
Meenakshi Soubhri
The tribal population is an integrated part of the biodiversity of the forest since ages. A large number of ethnic aboriginal tribes are there who live in and around forests in India. The tribes of India inhabitat different types of ecological setting and have adapted to these natural environments totally and completely. A culture - based development strategy for tribal enables new knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be most effectively and efficiently introduced within the frame-work of existing cultural patterns, institutions, values and human resources. Culture is a living entity, and to survive, it must not only functionally adapt for changing conditions but can indeed be at the vanguard of such change. A bridge is needed between development agents and tribal people to facilitate the transfer of information, skills and attitude-sets relevant to tribal development. Most of the rehabilitation schemes for the tribes have failed to yield desired results because of the cultural factors - some apparent, other subtle, but all critical to the absorption of the development programmes. The understanding of the culture phenomena and their integration for tribal development programme is indispensable. The tribal culture should be-viewed as a foundation rather than as a barrier to change. The relationship between culture and development goes very smoothly for the progress of tribes. Thus, taking into cultural dimension of tribal development not only means adding a spiritual dimension but also to include a dual reflection on both the logic of development and cultural progress of tribes.  ..more

Tribes and Tribal Discourse : Issues and Challenges
Kartick Das
India has a unique place in the tribal community of the world. In our country the tribal population, which is numerically considerable, is concentrated in various tribal belts as well as in non-tribal belts. There are about 700 tribal communities in India. According to the 2011 Census, there are 24,94,54,252 households, of which 2,14,67,179 households belong to ST population. Total population in the country is 1,21,05,69,573, out of these 10,42,81,034 are classified as ST with 5,24,09,823 males and 5,18,71,211 females. The tribal societies have remained isolated from the main stream of Indian society. After 70 years of independence, Scheduled Tribes are still at the lowest ebb of societal growth. In spite of all development scheme adopted and implemented for the tribals and thousands of crores of rupees spent both by the Central and the State Governments, the tribals are not developed up to the desired level. They are still underdeveloped. They are not at par with that of the other non tribal communities. What could be the reasons behind it? Taking into consideration of the problem, this book is an attempt to discuss tribal situation in India. The book tries to gather overall information regarding the various aspects that affect developmental process of the tribal communities and to identify the factors behind the increasing social discontent and extremism, makes crucial point that governance has been generally indifferent. ..more
