H. C. Upreti

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.

Tribal Revolts in India Under British Raj'
L. P. Mathur
The tribals of India have a strong sense of freedom and a realisation of what their rights are. And whenever these two aspects of their life, which is closest to their psyche, are attacked in any form, however slight, they not only feel offended but also stage a revolt. Regardless of whether their rulers have been the early maharajas, the Moghuls, or the British, they have never feared the might and power of their sovereign to fight for what they consider their freedom and their rights. Tribal Revolts in India under the British Raj studies the various revolts staged by them during the period the country was under foreign rule. The narration is based on original government records, administrative reports and published works, and therefore it is as authentic as can be. Students, teachers and researchers in Indian History will find this book of immense value in judging how the tribals of India fought off attempts to trample their freedom or their rights. Those interested in studying and wanting to know more about the tribals of the country will also find this book interesting. ..more

Medicinal Plants and Raw Drugs of Tribals
P. C. Trivedi
Healing with medicinal plants is as old as mankind itself. The use of traditional medicines and medicinal plants in most developing countries as therapeutic agents for the maintenance of good health has been widely observed. Modern pharmacopoeia still contains at least 25% drugs derived from plants and many others, which are synthetic analogus, built on prototype compounds isolated from plants. Interest in medicinal plants as a re-emerging health aid has been fuelled by the rising costs of prescription drugs in the maintenance of personal health and well being and the bioprospecting of new plant-derived drugs. This book “Medicinal Plants and Raw Drugs of Tribals” contains 15 chapters by eminent experts on different aspects of the subject. This book incorporates articles on: Important Medicinal Plants: Their Chemical Constituents and Uses; Medicinal Importance of Bryophytes: A Neglected Group of Plants; Medicinal Properties of Pteridophytes; Wild Edible Plants and their Method of Preparation and Mode of Consumption in Tribal Area of Odisha, India; Medicinal Properties of Elaeocarpus ganitrus (Rudraksh)- An Over view; Nutritional Value, Health Benefits and Medicinal Uses of Pear (Pyrus communis); Herbal Home Made Remedies in Cure of Diabetes in Folk Claims in Central India; Ethnomedicinal Plants in the State of Rajasthan-A Review; Ethnomedicinal Uses of Herbal Plants in Snakebite in Central India; Ethnomedicobotanical Observation on the ‘Chajine’- Moringa oleifera from Upper Brahamputra Valley, Assam; Ethnomedicine for Autoimmune Diseases by the Tribes of Srikakulam District, Andhra Pradesh; Herbal Folk Medicine used by the Kaibartas of Dibrugarh District, Assam, India; Mikania micrantha (Asteraceae)- A Miraculous Climber having Remarkable Anti Bleeding Activity; Pharmacological Action and Medicinal Uses of Green Chillies (Capsicum frutescens); Cultivation Practices of Geranium sps.

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

Tribal Revolts
B. K. Sharma
The historians have largely neglected the tribal history of Indian. An attempt has been made in this study to trace the history of different tribal groups such as Bhils, Girasias, Saharias, Meenas, Mers and Meos. Infact the present study is mainly concerned with the tribal revolts during 1818-1950 but at the same time proper attention has been paid to describe their early history. Thus, an overview of the tribal history has been emerged out in this study. The tribals were the first who revolted against the British Imperialism in India. Infact most of the tribal groups were never under the strict political and administrative control of any political authority in India. The British were the first who tried to bring the tribal under the circle of their political hegemony. This resulted in the revolts of tribals in 19th century and subsequently during first half of the 20th century these revolts culminated into organised movements. This is the central theme of this study.The study is based on wide range of sources which include the Gazetteers, Census reports, Administrative reports, Famine reports, gazettes, contemporary books, Atlases and Archival records etc. ..more

Tribal Girls : Aspiration, Achievement and Frustration
Damina Choudhary
Indian society at large is hierarchical, stratified and deficient in vertical mobility. As such, several schemes of tribal development are not making the desired headway despite the clamour by educational planners and politicians. After Independence, several government and non- government agencies have come forward to shoulder this responsibility with adequate budgetary provisions but yet the graph of education, especially among tribal girls, fails to show a significant rise. The problem needs a fresh look and the present book is a welcome step in this direction. It makes a comparative study of tribal and non-tribal girls reading in the same school, their performance and their aspirations on standardised tests. The author has successfully laid bare the threads of pressure that play a significant role in fanning the aspirations of girl students and has unravelled the various layers of frustration when they find that their aspirations are out of their normal reach. This cycle of aspirations and frustration is perceptible in both sections of girls though it is mild among tribal girls. The book is, no doubt, a comparative study of the aspiration and frustration among tribal and non-tribal girls and the findings will be useful and beneficial in planning educational programmes. Educationists, psychologists, policy planners, teachers, NGOs and all those having an interest in tribal affairs and development will surely find it helpful and gain a rare insight into the mental make up of tribal girl students and their non tribal counterparts. ..more
