Verrier Elwin As Remembered By His Family And Friend (A Birth Centenary Tribute)
Verrier Elwin As Remembered By His Family And Friend (A Birth Centenary Tribute)
Description
Foreword

August 29th 2002 marked the birth centenary of Dr. Verrier Elwin. His life was one of continous journey and comprised many phases. Varrier Elwin came to India as Missionary seeking reparation for the ‘sins’ of Englishmen in India. He endeared himself to Gandhiji, Nehru and Sardar Patel with his commitment to serve the weaker sections of India’s masses. His interaction with them and many others influenced him to work for the welfare of the tribes of India.

During the early part, Elwin worked among the tribes of central India and the last decades of his life was spent in the north-east India. Dr. Elwin had the chance to observe tribal life from very close quarters. With an academic background in English literature and a creative mind he wrote vividly on the way of life of the Indian tribes with an uncanny vision of anthropological details and emic perspectives. His concern to safeguard the Indian tribes from adverse effect of their uncontrolled interaction with the outside world, is well known.

Dr. Elwin was associated with the Anthropological Survey of India for a brief period in the capacity of Deputy Director. The editors, Dr. B. Francis Kuli rani and Dr. Bibhash Dhar deserve compliments for bringing out the present publication entitled Verrier Elwin as remembered by his family and friends as a tribute to Dr. Elwin on the occasion of his birth centenary. The reminiscences of Elwin’s family member unfold some still unknown qualities of this great admirer of the cultures of Indian tribes.

I hope, the readers would find this volume useful.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
