This paper is a contribution of the studies of the castes of the casted and tribes of the Marathi region undertaken a few years ago. The measurements on Brahmin sub-caste have already been published. This paper should have been published more than a year ago, when all the measurements were taken, but the statistical working out of the data has been delayed owing to circumstances beyond my control.
The University of Bombay gave a research grant of Rs. 800 for this project. I am very grateful for this help as also for the consideration it has show to me in regard to the delay in the publication of the results.
I also take this opportunity to record my thanks for the supply of test-sera for blood-grouping to the authorities of the Army Blood Transfusion Centre at Ghorpuri, Poona.
I am also grateful to Mr. V. M. Dandekar of the Gokhale Institute of Economics and Politics, Poona, for guidance and advice in statistical work. The actual statistical work was done by Mr. S. K. Valimbe, Mr. D. V.
