MetadataShow full item record
- Bora-import 
The Santals who constitute one of the largest communities in India belong to the Austro- Asiatic linguistic group. They have managed to keep their language and their traditional system of values as well. Nevertheless, their attempt to forge a new identity has been expressed by developing new attitudes towards medicine, politics and religion. In the four articles collected in this essay, deal with the relationship of the Santals to some other tribal communities and the surrounding Hindu society.
