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.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist.
