ROMA (The Gypsy World)
ROMA (The Gypsy World)
Description
About the Book:

The first Gypso-Anthropological study of Roma - the Gypsies of the world - is the result of an extensive Socio-Anthropological Survey covering twenty five countries of Europe, America and USSR. This is a vivid, account of the Banjara and other nomadic communities of India and the world.

The scholar who is an eminent social scientist and a creative writer has not only applied successfully the traditional techniques of research of participant and non-participant observations, but also his own approach and methodology. The book is based on his 11-year long research centered on Roma - the Gypsies who have preserved and lead their nomadic or semi-nomadic life throughout the world even in advanced countries.

This is a study in depth in the context of Indian nomads who migrated from their motherland, wave after wave, to other parts of the world - carrying with them the culture of their times with the inter-mingling of local traditions and customs.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
