The People of India project, a massive exercise carried out by the Anthropological Survey of India, has generated a wealth of information on the hundreds of communities, castes and tribes which exist in this country. These communities are presented in an alphabetical order for easy reference, and the subjects covered in each case include culture, society, location, language, script, biological variation, educational level, impact of development, food habits, rituals and work practices. Volume II, The Scheduled Castes (Volume I, An Introduction to the People of India, was published by Seagull Publishers, Calcutta) puts together information on all the Scheduled Castes of India, including their 445 segments and 306 territorial units.

People of India : languages and scripts by K. S Singh( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The People of India project, a massive exercise carried out by the Anthropological Survey of India, has generated a wealth of information on the hundreds of communities, castes and tribes which exist in this country. The subjects covered include culture, society, location, language, script, biological variation, educational level, impact of development, food habits, rituals, and work practices. For the present volume, project information was collected on the languages spoken and the scripts used within a kin group, at home and outside. Data was generated on community-specific languages (325), and on the scripts (25) in present use. The authors show that Indian languages derive strongly from the ethnic community or the territory in which the language is used. They also show the distribution of different language families, and the larger spread of languages such as Hindi, Marwari, Urdu and Telugu. They suggest that in language-contact situations, the incidence of bilingualism and multilingualism is very high. For example, many tribals speak more than three or four languages; moreover, there is evidence of considerable linguistic heterogeneity even within communities. All the States and Union Territories of India are multilingual, despite the dominance in each of speakers of the scheduled languages. The language situation is extremely dynamic, with new languages evolving to serve as the lingua franca in several areas. The data set being presented in this volume has been described as the third major contribution to the survey of Indian languages, alongside G.A. Grierson's work for the Linguistic Survey of India and the body of information generated by the Census of India. The People of India project on languages also forms the first comprehensive and definitive database of the languages and scripts used by communities all over India

"The People of India project, a massive exercise carried out by the Anthropological Survey of India, has generated a wealth of information on the hundreds of communities which exist in this country. These communities are presented in alphabetical order for easy reference, and the subjects covered in each case include culture, location, language, script, biological variation, food habits, rituals, work practices, educational level and impact of development." "This volume presents a quantitative profile of Indian society in terms of selected cultural traits. It forms an important part of the massive People of India project. In all, this book presents 392 cultural traits, divided into six parts, namely identity, ecology, social organization, economy and occupation, linkages, and development processes. As a companion to the Anthropological Atlas in this series, this volume highlights the spatial distribution of cultural traits across the states and union territories of India, revealing heterogeneity, distribution and linkages at both local and regional levels." "This is an important work of reference for all anthropologists, sociologists and human geographers, most particularly those who study India's communities in modern times."--BOOK JACKET
