This is our Homeland - A Collection of Essays on the Betrayal of Adivasi Rights in India

This is our Homeland - A Collection of Essays on the Betrayal of Adivasi Rights in India

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,538|Likes:
India characterizes a rich diversity with more than 2000 ethnic groups and four major families of languages. However, the increasing economic growth has not reduced the challenges of the state as far as poverty, exclusion, violence and socio-demographic indices are concerned, and have perhaps been in some ways, a contributing factor. There have been numerous legislations and constitutional provisions to respond to socio- economic-political and cultural disparity and exclusion but much of these efforts have not translated into effective implementation on the ground. At a time when the nation proudly commemorates 150 years of struggle for independence it has failed to recognise that for millions of adivasis and nomads the struggle for freedom and the right to live still continues.

'This is our Homeland' is a collection of essays on the betrayal of adivasi rights in India. This collection is an attempt to weave together various experiences and struggles documented by people and groups engaged in responding to the situation of indigenous/tribal communities in India.
