poverty and tribes
Concepts Taught: tribal life in infia

Tribes are socially rich economically poor. India according to the 1991 census 68 million tribes lived but number has now reduced substantially as forests reduced and their dependence on forest resources minimized. Economic and modern life style forced them to come out to get mixed with modern generation, but did not get proper attention and respect of their culture so most of them still live in below poverty line.
