Growth and Physical Changes During Adolescence among Bhil Boys of Rajasthan (A Rare Book)
Growth and Physical Changes During Adolescence among Bhil Boys of Rajasthan (A Rare Book)
Description
Preface

Great areas of ignorance about the detailed aspects of human physical growth and development are remained open for the progress of future research. In India, meaningful planned studies on this aspect are of immediate importance because of their applied value and national significance. These studies or surveys are needed especially in a developing country like India where there are innumerable ethnic groups with wide range of genetic variation, socio-economic and cultural differences. The present study, ‘Adolescent growth and physical changes among Bhil boys of Rajasthan’, has been under- taken in view of the above reasons with the following special features.

1 That, the study is first of its kind in the country where much attention is given for understanding the particular phase of human growth curve namely ‘adolescence’ by controlling the factors like, ethnicity, culture, social class and nutrition.
2 first such major study on any tribal group of India.
3 first in the series to link up nutrition for evaluation of growth in children.
4 the only study where large samples (l00 in each age group) considered for any ethnic group, and
5 the only study which has been subjected to large number of body measurements to understand the patterns of growth in wider context and meaningful grouping of growth characteristics.

This project report is the outcome of my research investigation con- ducted during 1978—80 at the Anthropological Survey of India, Western Region, Udaipur. I am grateful to the Director, Anthropological Survey of India, for the grant of the project and providing me with all necessary facilities. I am also thankful to him for his kind permission to utilise the data of this project for my doctoral thesis. I wish to express my sincere thanks to Dr. A. K. Danda, Dr. B.B. Goswami, Dr. P.K. Misra, Dr. R. S. Mann and Dr. B. R. Ghosh of Anthropological Survey of India who at times have shown keen interest in my work and rendered all possible help towards successful completion of this study.

I am grateful to Prof. D.P. Mukherjee, former Deputy Director, Anthropological Survey of India, Calcutta, for his guidance, advice and encouragement. Special thanks are due to Sri Kamal Kant Bagai, Anthropologist, Anthropological Survey of India, Mysore, for his keen supervision of this project work at the Regional Office, Western Region, Udaipur. Last but not least, I am also thankful to Sri P.K Bhaskaran, and Sri W.M. Kale for their active co-operation in tracing and making Photostat copies of the figures.

I received the 2 sarees and the DVDs. You truly are a treasure house for the music and other related things. You have gotten me an array of CDs,books,DVDs and not least of all beautiful sarees. All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.
Prashanti, USA
Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
