The tribalpeople are not only extremely marginalised in the area of educationand health but also do not have easy access to these. Theinfrastructure pertaining to these specific spheres in thissub-region is extremely dismal and the inequality in this spherevis-a-vis the general population is too stark. Alternate models ofeducation and health have been suggested to promote equity.The volume discusses how the tribal people have suffered morethan any other group from displacement caused on account ofacquisition of their land and how the dispossession from their landcombined with the dismal record of their rehabilitation has led todisintegration of tribal society, loss of identity and economicimpoverishment.
