The book is based on the study through field work conducted among the Didayi, a particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group (P.T.G.) and sponsored by the Planning Commission, Government of India. In a nutshell, the study is holistic, empirical and synchronic. A micro project, namely the Didayi Development Agency (D.D.A.) is functioning since 1986-87 for the overall development of the Didayi and its headquarters is situated at Kudumulugumma in Malkangiri district, Odisha. Their economy is subsistence oriented. Their social organization is simple and kinship plays a vital role in integrating their society. Their traditional socio-political organization was functioning prior to the introduction of Panchayati Raj System. They are polytheists and propitiate a number of deities for their blessings. Development is the core concept of the book. We hope that the present publication will be of immense use of the policy makers, planners, development practioners, voluntary organizations, research scholars, academicians and also the general readers in a number of ways. Printed Pages: 238.
