DOI : 10.9780/22307850, Published By : Laxmi Book Publication

Abstract :

India is a secular country covering people from different religions and castes and also the subdivisions of the castes. Based on Vedic faith, Manusmrithi and culture, the castes were formulated according to the occupations. According to ancient Hindu faith many of the castes were regarded as lower and others are higher. The lower castes include the backward communities with lower occupations and people living in forests and have ancient occupations. The term 'Adivasi' is derived from Sanskrit word 'atavika' means forest dwellers. They are also called as Vanavasi or Girijans (hilly people).
