Jarawas now willing to come to the mainstream: MP
The Jarawa are one of the indigenous people of Andaman Islands and their present numbers are estimated at between 250-400 individuals.
Port Blair: The members of Jarawa community are willing to come to the mainstream and embrace modern lifestyle, a local MP has said.
"It would not be appropriate to suppress the voice of the community and leave them in total isolation," Bishnu Pada Ray told a press meet in Port Blair on Friday.
"A parliamentary standing committee has already recommended review of policy for the primitive tribe of Andaman and Nicobar Islands to facilitate a 'slow and smooth' transition. But this would have to be done with minimum damage to the members of the tribe and their cultural heritage," he said.
