India is an entire subcontinent that, over the centuries, has witnessed the incorporation of a plethora of languages, religions and ethnic groups into a single country and cultural zone. Though its languages are many and its ethnic and religious divisions are marked, the Republic of India has, nevertheless, managed to project the image of a single nation with a common socio-historic base. Of particular interest to the BLAC FOUNDATION here are the Dravidian groups of Southern India, the Hill tribes, and the tribal peoples of the Andaman islands. For more about these populations and their respective cultures see Dr. E. Powe’s Hanuman’s People .
