The study gives an idea about the situation of a particular tirbe in almost in all aspects and it also helps us to know as how these bowmen’s social structure altered in the light of awareness, education and the contacts with the non tribals which mobilized them from their conventional occupation agriculture to the most recent professions, in which not only the young Bhil boys but also the young girls are involved. As revealed by various studies there are a positive impact of various development programmes on the socio-economic, cultural and behavioural patterns of these tribal communities. However, most of the studies have not adequately focused on the degree and direction of change in their life styles. This book also focuses on marriage and family, stratification, living conditions, food pattern, economy, religion, education, political organization and social movement, social mobility and changes of tribal culture.
