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.

Testimonials
I just received my package. It was just on time. I truly appreciate all your work Exotic India. The packaging is excellent. I love all my 3 orders. Admire the craftsmanship in all 3 orders. Thanks so much.
Rajalakshmi, USA
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!
