A blog devoted to Bhil tribes: Anarkali

We came across this wonderful blog, Anarkali, being maintained by Rahul Banerjee for the last eight years.

Unlike majority of blogs, which pertain to our own lives or our selfish passions, this blog relates to the lives of Bhils - a large community of Indian indigenous people.

As elsewhere, such people are subjugated to the diktats of 'modern' development, and are caught between the need to progress and the need to live a self-fulfilling, pristine traditional life. 

Anarkali has exceptionally rich archives on different aspects of Bhil life.
